When a goalie can pick Philly or Vancouver, who do you think they will pick? When a potential Top 6 forward can pick Canucks or Toronto, who do you think they will pick?
Does Philly have a real weakness in net, Emery was a pretty goalie before he wen't downhill, Philly also believes that Backlund will be better than Gustavsson, or at least they did when they signed him.
I see your point, but don't players want to play for a good team rather than a bad one, or is it more about the ice time, and possibly money?
