Absolutely valid. There are some homers who continue to insist that the Caps fleeced the Flyers, and that the deal was terrible for the Flyers. I think it was a very smart trade that filled an immediate need heading into the playoffs for Philly. Good move at the time for Clarke, who is highly underrated as a GM, in my opinion.

It can still be a deal that pays dividends for the Caps in the long run, though. Semin's going to come back, in time. They also have Maxime Daigneault percolating as a goalie prospect in the minors (the second rounder from that trade).
