That would be a contending line-up now with an opportunity to compete for years to come.
I don't think this is possible. To get Leino AND Richards on the team; Carle, Bob, and likely another will have to move on. It'll end up being:
-Team stays as is, re-signs Leino
-Flyers wheel and deal, keep Leino and add 1-2 more FAs
-Flyers wheel and deal, go after Richards or Stamkos (and that's it)
Also, Larsson is said to be NHL ready.
