Philly right wingers
Roenick (moved from center), Knuble, Radivojevic, Kapanen, Stevenson

Philly left wingers
Gagne, Somik, Brashear, Fedoruk

Patrick Sharp will play wing to accommodate Mike Richards, and he could probably play either side, but that left side looks weak. There is a lot of talk about the Flyers signing Cory Stillman, and I think he would slide in nicely at 2nd line LW. Anyway, we could still use a young, strong top 4 defenseman. Like a Jim Vandermeer.
I believe that Philly will have a better chance to fill their need at LW in FAs, which should be a bunch, than through trade.
