The Flyers made it to the Stanley Cup this year thanks to some guys who are tough and skilled and determined. Reminded some people about other notable Flyers teams. Which players from the 2010 team would have best fit in with the bunch Bernie played with back in the day?

Players on a team all have a defined role, as do the coaches.  The toughness and the ability to make game-time changes are very similar in the teams I played on and this team. The leadership on the ice is also present.

Pronger seems like he'd be a great fit. Carcillo and Hartnell, too. They're scrappy, and they seem to like confrontation. And in terms of playing big in big spots, Richards has acquitted himself nicely in the playoffs.

Pronger would be a great fit in any era. He's timeless. And he looks good in a skirt, too.
