Shelley is a better player and fighter than Cote and is somebody this team needs when playing teams like Toronto, the Rangers, etc. who like to take runs at our smaller players.

So right now I think the Flyers are a better team. We will see what they can do about upgrading in net and signing Carcillo and Powe - who in my opinion are easily replaced by Nodl and Shelley/Phantoms player x.
Nodle can play Powe's role much better. Losing Carcillo would be insulting only because we would have nothing to show for Upshall and our 2nd rounder. That would just stink of outright failure thus I can't see Holmgren totally eating crow on that one and not signing Carcillo...
