Didn't say Flyers had one. Said the Leafs do not.

A large part of the Bruins success is based on big tough skilled forward Milan Lucic and big strong all star Dman Chara.

I talk of the Bruins only because I believe they are the team closest to the Broadway Bullies model. That model being Skill Plus Toughness, blended together in the same players.

The Bruins have some players who are skilled but not tough, but those players would be useless without Lucic and Chara.
