I spent the morning re-watching clips from the 2004 Flyers playoff run. The 2004 Flyers used to be my favorite team but the 2010 team might replace them. It might be too soon to even consider this, but since this team got past the conference finals I couldn't help thinking about it.
I loved that 2004 team, and it still hurts to think of what might have been had the defense not been so injured.
Having said that, there is something very special about this 2010 team that seems to be felt by Flyers fans everywhere. Whether they end up with the Cup remains to be seen. But I think this team has all the heart the 2004 team had, and are on a par with that 2004 team in my heart right now.
That team was a great team but I am beginning to think that this one is a lot more talented. For once, Flyers are getting back players instead of losing them during the playoffs. Plus, this year's team has been amazing in the playoffs. They may be replacing 2004 as #1 for me.
