You don't trade players like Jeff Carter and get better. You trade a Jeff Carter when the team is in the toilet and he's on the wrong side of 30, there's contract issues, or he's being a cancer in the locker room. But if a team trading a Jeff Carter is attempting to make an actual hockey trade, they're going to get the short end every time.
I think a lot of fans are deluding themselves if they think the Flyers can lose Carter and not miss a beat. They need more players like him. The same goes for guys like Carle and Coburn.
The Flyers had an amazing draw this year in the playoffs. Nobody should forget that Washington and the Pens are still as good or better. And the thing both of those teams have is size with skill.
