Most importantly, no team in the East gets a lot better. Yes, that starts with the Penguins, but there are a few others that didn't need to be adding an elite player either.
There are certainly other free agents out there, but most of them have warts.
Considering their crappy drafts and now these free agency dissapointments, I'd say both Pens and Flyers have had a pretty forgettable summer. Couldn't be happier.
