Gagne, Niitymaki, Radivojevic, and a first isn't quite what Philly gave up in the Lindros deal. Gagne is very good but will never be a superstar, Robert Esche is a good young goalie (Beauchemin is coming up nicely, too), and Radivojevic's potential is a 2nd liner, at best. It's not exactly "the farm", if you ask me. As far as linemates are concerned, who knows what Philly's lineup is going to look like when the season starts? Primeau, Roenick, Handzus, Crosby, Carter, Richards, Knuble, and Kapanen isn't too bad of a start in filling out your top four lines. Obviously some centers will have to be converted to wing, but there is some serious talent/potential there. Granted, I am a Phoenix fan, and I am looking at this from a Phoenix perspective. I really just like how it fills what I percieve to be the holes in our line-up:

F:
Gagne-Comrie-Doan
Nagy-Nedved-Radivojevic
Saprykin-Ricci-Johnson
Nash-Rupp-Cleary
Xtras: Chimera, Kolanos, Sjostrom

D:
Morris-Gauthier
Mara-Hulse
Tanabe-O'Donnell
Xtras: Spiller, Ballard

G:
Niitymaki
LeNevue
