Yeah but that's looking at it in hindsight. At the time of the deal, I know as a Flyers fan that we ripped off CBJ. Carter wasn't going to excel with no linemates and Rick Nash wouldn't help Carter do any better (Carter's game is shooting the puck a lot).

At the time of these deals, the Philly-CBJ one had to be worse. Toronto and Boston looked bad initially but we knew Toronto was getting their best player from it.
