i don't care how you spin it, but it makes their organization look ridulously bad! they sell the face of Carter and Richards for years now and then up and trade them?
Carter, a pure goal scorer, and Richards one of the best two way forwards in the game, both young and locked up for years to come, suddenly are cancers that move be moved ASAP, and on top of that, lied to?
They bring Pronger in knowing his personality, same with Laviolette and you knew it would disrupt things. Pronger by the way couldn't even finish the season he had so many injuries. How many more productive season does he even have left, let alone lead a team on another deep run to the playoffs.
As far as the goaltender they signed, how much better has his regular seasons been than what the Flyers had previously? His post seasons have been just as bad if not worse that's for sure.
Voricek and Simmonds are nowhere near Carter and Richards. Do you really think that Briere, Giroux, and JVR are going to thrive without them?
Richards and Carter must have been up to unspeakable crimes in order to be moved in this manner. Goalie or no Goalie, there are at least 3 or4 players on that roster i would have moved to clear up capspace before those guys.
