Well, now that everyone has dismissed my comparion of the trades, my main point was to suggest that in the Sharp deal, we traded pseuduo-actualized potential (he actually played in the NHL) for unrealized potential that ended up being zero. In a possibly similar fashion, we traded potential (although, unrealized) for a player who has seen his max ability in the NHL. So, in trying to defend my comparison, I actually affirmed that the deals are nothing alike.....

That being said, The Flyers gave up potential in this deal for a player who will be AT BEST a 6-7 defensman in the NHL. I'd rather just keep the potential. What good is Syvret except as emergency fill in if a starting 6 player gets hurt, Bartulis gets hurt, and any other AHL defenseman gets hurt.
