Flyers also gave up two 2nds with Fedo for that first where they drafted Pitkanen, which really isn't as great of value as you want to make it sound like.

Langkow was an RFA when they traded him as well, and he was only tradeable because they signed two other offensive players that offseason. And although they did get Carter out of it, Langkow isn't exactly trash; he had 7 consecutive 20+ goal seasons after being traded, including two years with 30+.

The Flyers have clearly taken more risks, but to act as if they've walked on gold the past few years because they went to the SCF this year is absurd. They will be dangerously close to a Blackhawks sell-off next year if certain things work in their favor.
