In 1972, the Flyers drafted one of the best forwards of the era with the seventh overall pick. Usually a center, Barber (center) was moved to left wing on a line with Bobby Clarke, and he excelled, scoring 30 goals as a rookie in 1972-73. His strength, superb hands and excellent shot were key components of the Flyers' two Stanley Cup teams, and he scored a career-high 50 goals and 112 points during their third straight run to the final. Unfortunately, a weak left knee forced Barber to retire during the 1983-84 season. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1990 and won the 2001 Jack Adams Award as coach of the Flyers.
