I think flyers fans as a whole are used to having one of the best teams in the league all the time. In our recent history we have not had a team that was full of young guys who were part of our core team. When we had our "down" years recently we had a veteran team that just could not compete in the new NHL. We turned it around in one offseason and were instant competitors again. We took a bit longer of an approach by moving Carter and Richards for younger peices but I think it can work out. If we get a stud defensemen in this years draft in 2 or 3 years our defense could look like

Stud d-man-Coburn
Schenn-Grossmann
Gustaffsson-Gostisbehere

While our offense develops into the powerhouse it could be. We may be in a Chicago scenario at that point with a bunch of guys ELC's expiring at the same time. But Chicago won the cup with that kind of roster.
