Philadelphia Flyers: 5 Problem Areas Philly Still Needs to Address

With the first wave of free agency over, the Philadelphia Flyers have definitely improved with the additions they've made, but they still have some work to do. 

Vincent Lecavalier will add size and scoring up front, Mark Streit brings puck-moving skills to the defense and Ray Emery should provide steady help in net.

But with free agency winding down, the Flyers are right up against the salary cap ceiling and still have several areas that they need to improve on to make a playoff run. With almost no cap room, the Flyers' improvement will be limited to trades or development from the young guys.

That said, without improvement in these areas, the Flyers are unlikely to climb back into contention.
