So you say this about Koivu, and you are probably right. He was not seen as a #1 centerman....but I'd REALLY like to know how many players saw and see Gomez as #1 centerman as well....
The Flyers just traded Jeff Carter for a good, but not elite, prospect and a very good first rounder. Jeff Carter has scored 30 or more goals 3 times and scored 29 once.
Reports say that Philly has been looking to trade him since February. Reports also say that they (Flyers management) no longer thought they could win a Cup with him. Does that mean Jeff Carter is all of a sudden not a good player?

And referring to the players the Rangers got back in the trade, I don't it's fair to describe them as such in this post, and then hate on the Canadiens for making such a bad deal, in another. Can't really have it both ways.
