GENE'S BLOG: Bigger and Better

In his latest blog, Gene Principe talks about how the Oilers have improved in team toughness over the past year

by Gene Principe / Special to EdmontonOilers.com

During the CBA-mandated bye week I was on Oilers Now with Bob Stauffer and in the course of conversation I mentioned as a kid my favourite team was the Philadelphia Flyers. I loved Bobby Clarke. My favourite player of all-time or at least at that time. The Flyers lived the adage of we'll beat you on the scoreboard and in the alley. They had talent but they had a boat load of toughness. You didn't need a doctor to diagnose the 'Philly Flu'. Lots of players had it and I don't blame them. They won two Stanley Cups in the 1970's before their reign of terror was brought to an end by Montreal. It seemed a tad ironic that the Broad Street Bullies are no longer and an example of that by the Rogers Place ruffians.
