The people saying that you need defense/goaltending to win are grossly overestimating that. You need a balance of both defense and goaltending AND offense. You don't win games by only stopping a puck, you need to score too.
Lecavalier doesn't make the Flyers worse. It just doesn't improve the areas they need improvement in the most and takes away valuable cap space.
Who knows though. The team trading away Carter and Richards should tell you all you need to know about Phily's brass.
