You think Bryzgalov, Voracek and Simmonds is better than Carter, Bobrovsky and Richards?

Because that is the bottom line if we talk THIS year. That's why I said we could've waited another year, we can be pretty certain that we won't win this year. When Schenn, Couturier, Voracek and Simmonds pan out we'll see... I guess it was the right move to trade, pretty certain, but was the cap space best spent on Bryz?
The flyers could have kept Richards and gotten Bryzgalov if they really wanted to. I think its been beaten to death around here, but Richards and Carter were not moved just to sign a goalie. For better or worse, the organization felt like they had to move these guys before their no trade clauses kicked in. There's been a lot of speculation on this board as to why that happened, but I think its pretty much consensus around here that they weren't moved just so they could sign Bryzgalov.
