The Broad Street Bullies shaped the future of hockey in Philadelphia and also developed into an entire culture of expectations for opponents and fans at the historic Spectrum, making the building one of the most loathed places to play for other NHL organizations.

The Phantoms will be honoring those Flyers teams of the 70s on Friday, February 20 as part of their celebration of the final season at the Wachovia Spectrum. The club will wear a Broad Street Bullies-themed jersey as their second specialty jersey of the season when the club hosts Portland at 7:05.

I have a feeling a lot of people aren't going to like these jerseys. Personally though, I think they are awesome. They've got that original six look to them. The game on Friday will be televised on Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia. I doubt Giroux will be wearing one though...
