The Philadelphia Flyers have needed to dress eight rookies on a regular basis. They currently sit at the fourth seed in the Eastern conference despite the lack of experience in the roster.
With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, Paul Holmgren will be hard-pressed to make a move. But should he make a trade to make a trade?
Perhaps this is just not the year for the Orange and Black. Maybe being patient with this promising crop of rookies is the course to take.
Or maybe they are missing that one piece to spark the inferno of a championship run.
Either way, the Flyers showed over the past weekend that they need help on the blue line and the penalty kill.
In order to fix these areas, the Flyers might only have to spend some low draft picks or prospects in Adirondack—much like the way they picked up Ilya Bryzgalov last summer.
Allow me to present the moves they must consider at the trade deadline.
