The kid has all the tools includng great size.He will be a great player for the Flyers unfortunately.

They did get two 2nd round picks as well, but yes well worth it from a Flyers fans point of view.

I believe the thinking in Tampa was we need to make the playoff last year. Pitkanen wouldn't have helped in that regard, but Fedotenko, and Lukowich (they swapped one of the draft picks for him) did help them make the playoffs.

Short term it helped them, long term going to look like a major mistake.
