It is not worth the risk. You drinking the same kool-aid Holmgren, Clarke, Snider are pushing? They think we are better right now then we were a week ago. We are not better. This team still needs a checking defensive center, a 7th defenseman among other things.
Actually, the fact that I don't agree with Clarke when he says this is a better team is also the reason why I don't think it's very important to stock up on mid-tier free agent role players at market value. The trades may have helped the organization's long-term health, but to be a real contender RIGHT NOW the Flyers need to make a bold move. Otherwise they should wait and see what they have with the young talent. If they are better than anticipated, you can get a player of Cole's caliber at the deadline.
