This really isn't a very bad trade. Was a 2nd a little much? Probably, but given the desperation for defenseman I'll cut Clarke a little slack. Kozak is no great loss. He is smaller, less skilled version of Ben Eager. Kid's got 18 points in 48 games this season. Those are hardly the numbers of a future NHLer.
Besides, if the Flyers did overpay for Malakhov, it was more than made up for by the Therien deal. A 3rd and 8th for a guy they couldn't give away earlier this season is a small miracle. I only wonder whether the Flyers agreed to eat all or part of his salary to make the deal happen.
