Enemy territory: Broad Street Hockey (really cool people)
Enemy pro: Like the Canucks, they piss off their entire conference.
Enemy con: Chris Pronger has history involving being a dirtbag.

Allow me to be quite honest here: out of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, the Flyers might be one of my favourites. They don't seem to piss me off with all the attention on any superstar teammates. Also, they were quite fun to watch during the 2010 playoffs. I was able to watch that team closely through all 4 rounds. I remember celebrating the series win at BSH when they knocked out the Devils in 5 games, and when they made the historic comeback against the Bruins. I would've rather they win the Cup over the Blackhawks, but oh well.
Anyways, much has changed for that team over the last year and a half. They opted, this summer, to trade away their star forwards, moves that shocked the league. They grabbed Ilya Bryzgalov from the Coyotes, in the hopes that he can solve their rotating goalie door situation. But will this be enough to get back in the Finals?

Coconuts go.
