With Calgary's incredible defensive depth, I would not be so inclined to totally dismiss a deal that involved Richard's as the center piece in a deal for Phaneuf. You must consider that Calgary was high enough on Richards to consider picking him at 9 if Phaneuf wasn't available. Obviously the Flyers would have to add something probably considerable to this deal, but with Calgary's great depth on defense, they may consider listening to an offer that involves Richard's.

As for Richard's verse the rest of our prospects, I think it's pretty clear that Carter's upside is unmatched by anyone in our system. While I believe Mike will turn into a really solid, dependable, clutch 2nd line center, Carter's upside is that of a true #1 center in the mold of Mats Sundin. It's pretty clear that Carter is faster, stronger, has a better shot, and is a comprable play maker to Mike. I'm just happy we have both players in the system.
