That's where the issue lies and why people think Flyers fans who downplay Richards' and Carter's importance are delusional.
Richards and Carter are not d-men and don't play goalie... the depth the flyers acquired with these trades gives them better options going forward. What is hard to understand about that. Humor me and answer this... If your philly who do you want. Richards and Carter or Voracek,Couturier,Simmonds,Schenn,Cousins. It's ashame Holmgren went out and potentially ruined it with the signing of bryz but luckily he has a bail out option with these amnesty clauses. My point strictly refers to the value or carter and richards or simmonds,voracek,couturier,schenn,cousins from the flyers point of view. I'm not talking about who won a trade or how dumb holmgrens plan was. This is about the value or carter and richards vs the value of what they brought via a trade. I don't undervalue them one bit.
