I never thought the Richards trade was as lopsided as many have thought because I know what Simmonds can bring to a team.
Other than the favorite King part, I agree 100%. Simmonds was one of my fav's (not of all time though) and I still consider him a King. I hope he has a wonderful season (just not against us) and I'll be rooting for him no matter where he plays.

It wouldn't shock me to see Simmonds pot 30 goals in a season either. That trade will look a lot more in favor of the Flyers in 3-5 years, but I still agree with the trade and why we made it.
