Both of those moves look great.

Biggest mistake of the Carter/Richards trades was not getting a good d-man/prospect in return.
I know what your saying but IMO the Flyers simply couldn't pass up on what essentially fell in their lap. Couturier was the best possible player available to them at that 8 pick. Maybe they would have drafted from a position of need more if Pronger wasn't in the picture and our D hadn't become the patchwork D it presently is given injuries and the departure of Carle after losing out on Suter and Weber...
