There's so much talk about how if we'd only made the trade for Carter or Richards that Weber would have seen Poile is committed to winning, blah blah blah.

What the Preds had to offer differed greatly from what the Flyers accepted. We didn't have an early 1st round pick. We don't have prized forward prospects or 14 goal scoring 3rd liners to cough up. We have blueline prospects. We scoff when Poile says he tried to get in on those players, but it isn't like the Preds and Flyers haven't made a lot of deals over the years. It looks like we just didn't have the return Philly was looking for ... especially after our big midseason trade.
