I fail to see how trading one young piece that is not the face of the franchise is gutting it. I think the only trade involving one young player that guts the team is trading someone like Giroux for a LSchenn-type.

Flyers management most likely got frustrated with JVR after seeing his dominant play in 2011 playoffs and that big extension they gave him. As for Ryan, I would never trade any assets to get him. Either sign him as a FA or don't get him at all. If he wasn't a local person and a Flyers fan with ties to the organization, all this talk wouldn't be happening.
