On the other hand, Nedved is not the prototypical Philadelphia Flyer forward. He hasn't had a very productive season since the 02-03 season (58 points), is well past his prime and makes a lot of money for 2 seasons.
If both players made similar salaries, I would say it's a "garbage for garbage" trade, but it seems to me that this trade prohibits what the Flyers can do the rest of this season and with off-season free agent signings.
BTW, doesn't it seem like over half of the Flyers trades as of late are with the Coyotes?
Definately but this time I don't see it working out for the Flyers in the same way the ones in the past have.
Phoenix & Philadelphia Trades
Radivojevic+Burke+Eager for Comrie
Handzus+Esche for Brian Bouche and a 3rd
Tony Amonte for Guillame Lefebrve and two 3rd round picks
Petr Nedved for Dennis Seidenberg
