The Flyers are in fourth because of their offense. Their defense has been consistently bad. They have no elite defenseman. Chicago, in contrast, has a Duncan Keith and Seabrook. The Flyers are not a cup contender. They lack the defense or goaltending. They cannot win a best of 7 against an elite team, such as the Rangers or Boston.

The Flyers could get a ton for Jagr. He is a much better player than Ruutu or Hemsky. If the Flyers traded him and Carle to the Rangers they could get Krieder, Erixon and a pick.

They could trade Timmo and get a huge return. They could also trade Coburn.

They have non-core assets. Let's face it: Carle and Coburn are not elite defenseman. The team needs to trade their veterans and mediocore defenseman and try to rebuild their defense. They are not winning the cup. I would not be surprised if they exited in the first round. Their defense is that bad.
