I know that HF has a tendency to overreact, but what team trades their two top stars two seasons removed from almost winning the stanley cup. If they were such cancers, how come it didn't effect the team in the playoffs in 2010?

I freely admit I'm a bit biased since Richards was my favorite player, but it's amazing how some people will turn on a player once he is traded. I'll always be a flyers fan regardless of who is on the team, but it doesn't mean I have to think every move they make is a good one. In 3-4 years, these guys we acquired may be on the levels of Richards and Carter, but then what about the defense?

Or how they'll overrate them when they're in your stable.
