If you look at piece for piece, across the board...i.e- Carter/Voracek and Couturier, and Richards/Schenn and Simmonds, plus add in Jagr-Leino tradeoff, and Rinaldo-Carcillo trade off I think it is obvious to see that this team is a vastly deeper team.
I don't think it is obvious at all. I see a Flyers team that is largely driven by luck right now. They've had 3 blowouts against AHL defenses. They have many players that are performing well above their norms. This team has all of the signs of a team that will struggle in the second half like last season.

Couturier and Talbot will be great, but neither will keep up their current production for a full season.
