Bobby did a lot more than break Kharlamov's ankle to earn his rep. He was the consumate rink rat and was loved for it. I know he was a fav of mine. Did he drop the gloves a lot? Nope. Look at other beloved Flyer rink rats especially Linseman & Suter. Fighters? Nope. It's one of the reasons I like Crosby. He's very talented, he's a bit nasty and he's a leader who will do what it takes to win.
Nice? Nice don't win bud. Without a doubt the Flyers are as dirty as Crosby is claimed to be but the blinders are on.
