Here's your chance to decide which goalie should start. In one afternoon, go one-on-one against Esche and Niittymaki, and get Flyers pics and autographs. Time with the Flyers aside, maybe you're interested in a possibly winning a 2007 Mercedes-Benz. Or, truth be told, maybe you just want to see how hot the Flyers’ Wives really are. Any way you cut it, over the years this annual carnival has raised more than $20 million. In hockey talk, that's about the same amount another four years with Forsberg would have cost the organization. While the little ones are playing in the skate zone, the really little ones can play with Elmo in the Kids Zone from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., February 25th. Tickets $17 half-day, $37 full day. Wachovia Center, 3601 South Broad Street, 800-298-4200; philadelphiaflyers.com.
