I was always under the impression that's why there are a lot of Flyers fans in Canada...their style of play drew in fans, even outside of Philly.
100% correct. Especially Western Canada, the Flyers got a lot of fans out here during the Bullies days because of their style of play and there were no Western Canadian NHL teams yet. Also, there are/have been lots of Flyers from Western Canada going back to the glory days especially.

I was in Philly at the beginning of December and after a Flyers game vs the Bruins, we ran into another group of Flyers fans at our hotel who were from Alberta. Small world.
