The big man with the big hands, broad shoulders, steely eyes and thick mustache wasn't so intimidating Monday as he carried his golf clubs while wearing a powder-blue shirt. Obviously, times have changed for Dave "The Hammer" Schultz. For starters, he's now a comedic speaker, which is first cousin to the stand-up comic. Dave Schultz, funny man. That alone is hilarious. Schultz wasn't overly amusing during his playing days. He was the nastiest, toughest, scariest goon in the National Hockey League in the 1970s, back when the players policed the game with their fists. When people remember the Philadelphia Flyers of 30 years ago, they think of the Broad Street Bullies. Nobody was a bigger bully than The Hammer.
