IMO it wasn't that he was given up on as much as it was that Anaheim wanted him -- or at least was willing to accept him -- in the return for trading Pronger to the Flyers... You have to give up quality for quality... and in theory all good and fair trades should be equal. The Flyers wanted Pronger greatly and, as I see it, were willing to lose a young D-man they considered as having a nice upside for the leader and Number One D-man they coveted. I don't see it as a slap at Sbisa in the least... Now, if they had traded him straight up for clunker of a player......................
