Hockey in the NHL is a far different game than it was 45 years ago, when the Broad Street Bullies ruled the ice with their fists.

In the 1970s, the Philadelphia Flyers had guys like Dave "The Hammer" Schultz, Bob "The Hound" Kelly and Andre "Moose" Dupont to not just beat opponents but beat them up, too.

The current Flyers may still carry the "Bullies" nickname but they are hardly bullying anyone: They are one of only two teams in the NHL that has not been assessed a fighting major a quarter of the way through the season.
