All-decade Flyers roster: Forwards Edition

Fourth Line: Laughton – Richards – Read

Scott Laughton: A former first-round pick of the Flyers in the 2012 draft, Laughton has just started finding his game in the past couple of seasons. He is a dependable two-way player, the type you need in the playoffs.

Mike Richards: Even though Richards was traded in the 2011 offseason, he was better than a lot of other centers the Flyers had in the past ten years. The former captain had two 60-point seasons to open the decade before he was dealt to LA.

Matt Read: An undrafted player who found a role for a few years, Read was an effective penalty killer and flashed some offensive game. He had two 20-goal seasons in his time here.
