The Flyers have an extremely rich tradition. They can be considered as part of the Original 6 "lore" with their history from the Broad Street Bullies to today even though they aren't an O6 franchise. We also have a lot of passionate, or "hate" depending on who you talk to, rivalries. Nowadays the Flyers biggest rivalries are the Pens, Devils, and Rangers. At one point in time the Blues were a big rival along with the Bruins.
Great and legendary players like Lindros, Forsberg, Recchi, LeClair, Primeau, Clarke, Parent, Howe, and many others have donned the Orange and Black throughout the years. You probably won't find another team in the NHL that has had the bad luck of the Flyers in terms of Cups. If their luck was better, I believe we would have at least 3 more Cups.
The Capitals can't really compete against the Flyers in terms of tradition and history IMO.
