I liked the trade, team wise, but I do miss Eric. He was part of the team just like Justin was. You don't think his roommate Preems wish he was here and a part of this? It's a shame but that's the way of the business.
I liked Eric a lot too. He was a real character guy and he played so sound positionally. He was a good old American boy and he'll be missed but weino had a hefty salary and appeared to have slowed a little. Clarke picked up Malakhov out of desperation and he apparently made the right decision because for the first time since the Lindros era the Flyers are in the ECF.
Sorry Eric, nothing personal, buy your time here was up.
