if you honestly believe that richards and carter were bad for this team and if that helps you sleep at night, that's fine. at the end of the day, they're stanley cup champions and they did it without the flyers. to me, that sucks. it should've happened here, and it could've.

i like our new team. i just hope our fans and our GM can be patient this time around.
I think Giroux, Couturier, and a full-season of Schenn at center, will show a great improvement among the defensive efficiency of the forwards. The Flyers got good value in return for Carter and Richards.
