LA definitely didn't hose them. The Flyers got Simmonds who outproduced Richards by 10 goals and 5 points last year by the way and Schenn who projects to be at worst a 2nd line centre and has already shown flashes of brilliance.

The Flyers definitely had a better offense last season with Simmonds/Schenn than they would have with Richards who seems to have already peaked offensively and due to his size and style of play will probably start declining earlier than most players.
