Most of those names never become Flyers.
No I agree with you there. I'm not saying they WOULDN'T have made better picks or even the same picks, I'm just saying that of those guys that were selected, none are that impressive to where I am really kicking myself on those trades. Some are, for sure. But again, if we don't make some of those trades, we likely don't have guys like Schenn, Couturier, Read, and others now. We'd have Richards and Carter still, and maybe some more prospects, but would the team really be better off? Possibly yes, possibly no. I don't think it is a given either way, all I think is that the team we have now is pretty damned good and pretty damned promising for the future.
