Philadelphia Flyers: 4 Veterans Who Could Take the Team to the Next Level

Throughout the 2011-12 regular season, the Philadelphia Flyers played pretty well and made strides while implementing their rookies.

After taking out their cross-state rival Pittsburgh Penguins in the playoffs, they fell flat in the next round and were bounced by the New Jersey Devils.

Now recognizing this deficiency, the team will be looking to add a few players via free agency who can provide a much-needed sense of leadership next season.
