I still hate pretty much everything Holmgren has done this summer though. Time will tell if it was a good move for the Flyers or if he set them back four or five years through sheer incompetence and mismanagement.
I don't think Homer would've made the changes he did if there was any other way.
We all did the numbers, he could have afforded Bryzgalov without dealing 17 and 18.
And I don't think he really wanted to trade Richards and Carter, but between him, the organization and the owners, they decided they had no choice.
It wasn't done lightly, but it was done well. They ended up with 4 very good players for them, and really lucky that Couturier slipped to 8.
