Sounds like a terrible trade
Except that Bob was 3.02 GAA and a .899 sv% with us his last year. And played in 7 playoff games with no wins. And that the 2nd pick has turned into a good goalie prospect.

In the end, Philly traded Bob so he could have a chance at a #1 job. Good for him for playing well. Always liked him. I really thaink that if Pronger was hurt in the playoffs before hand, Philly keeps Bob and never signs Bryz and really goes younger. The Pronger injury changed everything, especially after trading 3 1st's to get him.
