Then I guess we disagree on that count. I don't really buy into the concept of winning or losing a trade, most of the time anyway. In my opinion, Philadelphia is ahead of where they were, and that trade was a big part of it. The issues they have on their team are in a completely different area, namely goaltending and their blue line.
