2012 NHL Winter Classic: Top 5 Player Additions for the Flyers and Rangers

Both the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers spent this offseason tweaking their respective rosters. 

The Flyers boldly traded away team captain Mike Richards and leading scorer Jeff Carter to clear salary space for newly acquired goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, a 2009 Vezina Trophy runner-up. 

The Rangers won the free agency lottery when Brad Richards (no relation to Mike) signed with the Blueshirts.  

Both teams hope the new lineups better their chance of securing a victory and two big divisional points in the 2012 NHL Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park in the the city of brotherly love on Jan. 2. 

Each team also hopes a fresh roster will help them lift Lord Stanley's Cup come June.
