I mean, after all, they're the experts and we're just a bunch of uneducated fans yapping away on a message board. Hey, at least Carlson hasn't turned into a very promising prospect. Oh, wait... http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=99508, http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/john_carlson

But I guess Homer and friends -- you know, the experts -- knew what they were doing in passing on him. One thing is for sure: Having Carlson in the prospect cupboard would have made the loss of Sbisa a lot easier to stomach.
There isn't a team in the league that has guessed wrong and drafted/traded the wrong guy...not a single one. And each team has done it multiple times. If the Flyers had a history of this type of thing and it resulted in them being a mediocre franchise, then I would be pissed...but it hasn't. They have been a very competitive team and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

I find your location quite fitting for your post.

That makes my naughty parts tingle.
