.. This team as constructed , no matter what alot of us think are not that "team" tough when it comes to the extra curricular stuff that goes on with games with the Pens, Sens and Rangers and now potentially the Sabres ... Now Asham replaces Prust on the Rags , Prust use to punish the Flyers , Ash got Schenn up high with a cheap hit, someone needs to address that other then Hartsy and Max Talbot . Heck even Max ( and bless his heart I love the guy) lost some of that ***** "edge" he had in years past when he came to Philly last year.....

Ok Ramble over .. point is I wish this team had a few more "a$$holes" that can do more then just agitate
I think we have more then a few guys who can take care of themselves. I know everyone was pissed off at the way those cheapshots went down in the Pens series, but I believe the Flyers handled it the right way. Players have long memories. You take a number and you move on. Looking for payback in a playoff series you had full control of is not the best way to handle it.
Asham is a pro and outside of that incident with Schenn has been a pretty honest player his whole career. i wish we still had him over that useless slug Jody Shelley.
Kunitz, Asham and even Malkin(cant forget what he did to Grossman) will be dealt with this season. Players dont forget.
