Paul Holmgren is getting ready to push the panic button -- and he needs help everywhere.
The Philadelphia Flyers GM wasn't happy with the club's 2-6-1 record going into Saturday's visit by the Carolina Hurricanes. The word amongst league executives is he'd take just about anything he can get.
The Flyers need scoring, would like to get another blueliner and, on top of that, could use goaltending help as well. Generally speaking, they've been happy with Ilya Bryzgalov, but they did hold talks with the Vancouver Canucks about Roberto Luongo.
