About the goaltending situation, there have been guys out there over the years that he's passed on. The closest the Flyers have had to a guy who could win a cup was Boucher... Since 96, who have they had that's a legitimate Stanley Cup goaltender? Even in 96 they didn't, but they did reach the finals... only to be swept.

I'm not saying the goaltending hasn't been a factor, but tell me when they could have really gotten one of the true elite goalies ???

Brodeur, Roy, Hasek, Belfour (in his prime).

With goalies you generally have to get lucky in the draft, the top flight goalies don't get moved very often.
