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.
I definitely agree on the first part. Kaberle could return a first and a good prospect, and while I don't believe that pick will be top-10, the biggest issue of this deal is that it doesn't work for these two teams.

You're also right in that Murray looks to going after a Flyers re-tool on the fly. I hope that he doesn't try and mortgage our future to get there though. I don't mind a late first for an very cheap puck mover with Campoli, but I'd draw the line at this deal.
