Couldn't read past Pronger for Carter and Sbisa.

Pronger to Philly, much like he was to Anaheim, was a move to push for the cup. Jeff Carter and late first round picks do not have the same value when your team is in that position.

The "dumb" move was keeping Niedermayer for one season versus Pronger for 5+, but nobody wanted to see Scott retire or play elsewhere and obviously seemed to be more a "Duck for life" than Pronger did. In the end with a future of Sbisa and Fowler, Anaheim will be better off than having Pronger and neither of those two but the true gains of that are a year or two away at best and even still Murray really lucked out with Fowler.

Hell maybe if we kept Pahlsson instead of getting Wisniewski we have someone to shut down Detroit besides RPG and we win game 7. There are too many hypotheticals to go over, all we can do is modify our current roster and push on.
