From what I've heard Straka has a great shot so maybe he would be a good choice for a call up, even if it's just for a short tryout. I know he's not exactly putting up a lot of points in the AHL but if his shot is good then maybe he could be useful playing with Giroux.

Honestly, I'm down to try anything right now that includes a new LW on the first line...
Had not thought of Straka. But I also dont know how the organization views him. It doesnt seem to be the "MO" of the Flyers to call up someone because a shakeup or however you want to call it is needed. They are going to continue to roll out what they have and hope they break out of this season long funk.
