The Flyers could of acquired Bryz without trading those two guys so if the cup was his desire, he wouldn't have pushed to jettison Carter and Richards. So there appears to be a contradiction.
I'll say this about Carter and Richards and I'll leave it at this - they signed mega deals, yet they were still moved. You aren't moving players who sign those big contracts unless there's something really wrong behind the scenes. Holmgren can profess his love for both players, but there was something really wrong behind the scenes when both guys, who signed contracts for double digit years, are moved with a blink of an eye.
