If you want to see the team compete for the Cup this year, then changes need to be made.
That's where I challenge you and this team. We have great goaltending and the best defense in the league. There's no reason why we can't win in the playoffs, especially with Sturm and Parse back. At the very least they will add some level of offense.
I also never said I support the status quo, I said at the current prices I'd rather not pay that amount of assets to acquire highly overrated talent. Kris Versteeg is a 25 goal 50 point player, and only at this point in the season is that worth a 1st and 3rd.
Like I said, if we go and add a guy like Stillman, or as another poster suggested Zherdev, at a reasonable price, I'm for that. But, based on what is available on the rumoured market in terms of forwards, no one is a legitimate front line player and yet the Flyers paid a front line price. I'm not down with that, at all, and I'm more than comfortable adding a lesser piece, or nothing at all, and asking this team to win 2-1 games all playoffs long.
It's not like we are faltering down the stretch either, we are 7-0-2 in our last nine, much of which has been on the road.
