theres a couple rally big flaws in your argument

1) jarome iginlas best days are behind him and he was never the star in america he was in canada. if what your looking for is pure star power he doesnt have it. causal hockey fans dont recognize him any more than they do pronger. think about it, every marketing guy in the league was loving the idea of opening new markets with a black dude named jarome and it still didnt happen

2) rick nash is a beast but getting him out of colombus is near impossible. as a smaller market hes thier franchise player crucial to both thier success and thier marketability.

3) the legacy of the bullys is part of our franchise identity. even though we dont really play that way its still marketed that way. we havent led the league in hits in years or had a heavyweight enforcer but the flyers are always thought of as a tough team.

4) the guy you want is bobby ryan. young star, hometown kid, great redmption story all the stuff reporters drool about. and hes right in the flyers mold being a big bodied power forward. anaheim loves him and he isnt going anywhere.
