With the Olympic break down to its final, climactic day and the restart of their regular season arriving Wednesday, it's decision-making time for the Flyers -- and not a one of them is an easy one. Dilemma: With Primeau's status uncertain and several previously unhealthy players returning to the lineup this week, the Flyers must decide whether they need to upgrade their roster prior to the March 9 trading deadline.

So why not go after names such as Jokinen, Samsonov and Pittsburgh's Mark Recchi, who has one more year left on his contract valued at just less than $2 million?
