And Philly had one of the deeper forward groups in the league, we had one of the thinner bluelines in the league.
So then wouldnt the guy who logs more minutes and is generally a more important/ relied on piece more valuable? why would you trade a 22minute rookie dman for a 15 minute rookie forward? If logic serves correct, you dont trade from a possition of weakness.
