What can put Philly over the top?

What is the secret remedy for the Philadelphia Flyers? They have four solid lines with six 20-goal scorers, a good balance between veteran players like Simon Gagne and Mike Knuble and young core players like Mike Richards and Jeff Carter.

On top of that, a very underrated defense with the likes of an up-and-coming Braydon Coburn and hardworking Kimmo Timonen.

Although Marty Biron is by no means an elite goalie in the NHL, he has proven time and time again that he can be the playoff goalie that Philadelphia needs him to be.

Yet, with all this said, Philadelphia needs something to be able to compete with teams like Pittsburgh next season.

Does Philadelphia need another facelift?
