Depends on what you mean by a fix. If you mean having a real chance at a Cup then that would take more then just one player short of it being a huge player. It's also not even seeming likely we make the playoffs, but that's besides the point.
In an ideal world I'd see Hartnell moved for whatever as Simmonds is younger and does everything he does better for the most part. I'd also keep Schenn at the 2C position and see how Lecavalier goes. If he keeps getting injured or keeps being a two-way liability and not delivering on the dot while not being a great presence in scoring contributions then he's not worth holding on to. Especially with that contract. Then figure out someone to bring in who can score goals without it having to be a garbage type goal and preferably able to play a two-way game.
That's in an ideal world though. As is Hartnell is hard to move because he's such a big part of the Flyers identity and at least used to be such a fan favorite but also because of the NTC. Lecavalier contract is something nobody is going to want to take if he doesn't improve somewhat and getting an impact winger like that would cost something good. Not Hartnell.
