Dave Scott, who confers with general manager Chuck Fletcher every day and believes in his decision making, told the Inky he doesn’t think the team needs radical changes.

He believes the Flyers need another scorer and top-pairing defenseman, and he strongly hinted that a backup goaltender is on the team’s wish list.

“I think we’re closer than our record shows,” Scott said. “If you look at it, it’s the same core group we had last season, and we took a big step under difficult circumstances, playing up in Toronto in the bubble.”
