from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News, Here are five things the Flyers can do to make the last month of the season a lot more interesting: Fight When Claude Giroux was pounded, face-first in the boards in the third period Thursday night against a docile Islanders team, the Flyers did not react. When their captain and most important asset was lying on the ice, it was embarrassing that two players within grabbing distance - Jake Voracek and Matt Read - did not go after the offending Lubomir Visnovsky.

Matthew Barry: What About Kimmo Timonen?

As mentioned previous, the Kings and Flyers love to trade with each other. The Flyers need to rebuild the back and the Kings have the young assets that could turn into Schenn and Simmonds on the blue line. Timonen has a year left on his contract at a 6 mil cap hit.

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Season from Hell Continues

The 2013 Philadelphia Flyers are a deeply flawed team that can neither protect leads efficiently nor win games that are up for grabs.

The team is just ill-assembled in general and...
