Back in the '70s(for those of you not born yet) the Flyers were known as the Broad street bullies because of their penchant for fisticuffs. Really they were a very good hockey team with a few thugs to scare the hell out of opponents. After what happened last night in Nashville(9 Fights) and what I saw of them last year it appears we've got a 2003 version of an old theme.

They have some young talent: Legwand, Tootoo, Orzagh, Hartnell, Eaton, Zidlicky(picked up in the Dunham deal) amongst others to go along with some tough customers.

They make life miserable for their opponents and could be this years surprise team. Comments?

"penchant for fisticuffs"....I like that! :lol:

I dunno about a surprise team...not thus far anyway... 4 wins, 5 losses - 22 goals for and 23 goals against. I think it's too early in the season to make that type of determination.

They also have a good goalie in Vokoun, this guy keeps Nashville in games, night in and night out

On a good team, he would be very good.
Yeah, when they traded Dunham last year I was surprised. It was risky to put the work load on Vokoun but he has been very, very good as a starter and the main reason they made the late season push last year for a playoff spot.

Nashville needs to improve their defensive core a little more, call up some of their big-name prospects and you got yourself a team.

I've always liked Nashville, for some odd reason. I guess I enjoy watching the newer expansion teams.

By the way, Dunham is horrible. He'll continue to suck in the Big Apple.

They're not gonna do good at all this season. They're never going to make the playoffs. Never. :twisted:

It's not like the 'Nucks ever make it past the first round of the playoffs. I remember the goal from center ice on Vancouver. That was great.
