Richards is the type of player that will bring you a championship with his leadership, grit, play making and defensive play. Carter is the player that can make one line better no matter who he is with.
Schenn has potential to be a good player but currently he is more of a second/third line checking forward with scoring potential. Simmonds has been great on the Flyers and I see him more as a pp guy that can play on the second/third line. Voracek has been one of the Flyers best players this year and should be with Giroux for a long time. And lastly Couts, while he has been struggling offensively, he has the defensive game that can shut down the top forwards in the league.
Richards, Carter and Voracek are the current top players with Simmonds right behind them. Then Schenn and Couts have potential to turn into good players, they just have to break into their potential a little more each season. Keep in mind though that players like Simmonds are rare in this league which makes him very valuable to any team.
I call the trade even for L.A and Flyers winning the trade with Carter. I wanted the Flyers to get rid of Lavy instead of Richards/Carter back then but Homer got great value in return. The locker room was divided and something had to be done.
