We'll see what Murray does though, he hasn't been afraid to deal picks so far this year. I think he wants to do a Flyers rebuild, and get back into the playoffs next year. We'll see what happens this summer anyways.

Edit: Zenator1, the difference between Ottawa and Toronto is that Ottawa has their core players already locked into contracts. Ottawa can't go into a three or four year rebuilding process unless they give up on that core. Toronto isn't in the same boat, so saying that they're both rebuilding teams who won't trade youth isn't very accurate.
It is actually a very unfair deal. Would you trade Schenn and your first for Andrei MArkov?
