A lot of teams take moronic penalties. Although I think the Flyers take more than average, the bigger factor is the reputation earned of "playing with an edge" that makes the refs more cautious when they play physically.

It's more of something to be observed more than seen through stats, but I'd still like to see how many of those penalties were the result of roughing, interference, crosschecking, etc. compared to the rest of the league.
