A fast, tough team would eat up that slow defense in the playoffs.
Their filler guys other than O'Donnell, Timonen, and Pronger:

Coburn- 25 yrs. old
Carle- 26 yrs. old
Meszaros- 25 yrs. old
Bartulis- 24 yrs. old

not sure if you're serious about the bolded statement or just didn't bother checking. A motivated Foote on one last run could be very beneficial to the D the Flyers already have. And some of these old guys have proven that good positioning can beat speed when they keep them on the outside.
