2011-12 Flyers: Bigger, Stronger, Tougher

I wanted to see the difference between the forwards from last year to this year so I compiled some data. All height and weight numbers were from wikipedia (through looking around, I felt this was the best and most accurate site), hitting and TOI numbers were from NHL.com, and fighting numbers were from hockeyfights.com.

*Jagr's numbers were from his last season in the NHL

** I only used the top 7 forwards because having Shelley/Sestito in the top 8 would skew all of the size numbers as compared to Powe and Nodl being the 7th and 8th forwards
