while everyone is quick

to point out that Quebec got the best of the deal,the financial implications cannot be overlooked.philly had missed the playoffs for like 5 straight seasons and morale was extremely low.the trade has boosted the fans interest in the Flyers.their seasons ticket sales jumped like 200% AFTER the trade was announced.they were going into a new building and had the resources then to build up back around him.and despite whats become of him since,he really WAS all he was hyped up to be.in retrospect would they do it again,probably not.Forsberg turned out to be the cornerstone in the whole deal.
