The Philadelphia Flyers are the NHL's toughest franchise of all-time.

From the Broad Street Bullies of the 1970's to the 1980's teams consisting of tough players such as Behn Wilson and Dave Brown, the Flyers have always been tough.

The 1990's Legion of Doom was backed by a number of enforcers, and in 2004 the franchise set an NHL record by totaling 419 penalty minutes in a game with the Ottawa Senators.

In their most-recent Stanley Cup run, the team was the toughest in the league. Now the franchise will bring toughness onto the ice with one of the NHL's top fighters, Jody Shelley, leading the way.

Shelley will be accompanied by power-forwards Wayne Simmonds and Scott Hartnell. Shelley may also have a gritty AHL player such as Zac Rinaldo or Tom Sestito as a linemate.

In one way or another, this team will always be tough.

A number of great fighters have dawned the orange and black.
