There are far too many problems with this team to fix. Lavi obviously won't be able to fix them all and its going to take some creative personnel management to add some effective players into the lineup.
The era of Talbot, Fedotenko, and Knuble has to end as soon as possible. You can't really put too much blame on Knuble because he's played far beyond expectations for someone his age. But Talbot and Fedotenko are black holes and Knuble ain't exactly helping the cause. They haven't delivered on anything that's been expected of them. They suck on the PK, they can't take faceoffs, and they provide zero energy. They can't even play dump and chase. There seems to be an abundance of role players in this league who they flyers could pick off the waiver wire and I bet that replacing these guys would do a world of good for the team. There are plenty of untalented players who get by because they bring it 100% every game. Right now, few Flyers are having that influence.
Of course, it wouldn't make us a playoff team but work ethic is contagious. And right now, this team has no work ethic. And this has been apparent since Lavi has been coach and not being able to play 60 minute games seems to have finally caught up to them.
