Not worth it.
I see your point. Still, if Pronger-Timonen get worse and the Flyers fall short, they may find themselves at a crossroads. An aging defense, an offense that's bleeding talent and, well, Leighton (or Turco). That cold spell is coming anyway. Unless Carter puts up 90 pts, letting him go for 4 1st round picks isn't necessarily bad asset management. In any case, it depends on what happens next year.
