BUT since the Flyers suck right now (and yes most of last year) the Richards and Carter trades keep coming up
I'll admit that the Flyers lost the trade, IF people stop crying about it
I loved Richards on the Flyers, I hated to see him go it sucked, yeah there was a huge hole left here when he left
I think between B.Schenn and Couts we get back a lot of what Richie brought here, and I'm optomistic enough to believe B.Schenn can be just like Richie, but maybe I'm delusional
Richards or Carter are most likely never coming back to Philly to play
It is what it is
Well, yeah. If the trades worked out better and the team was still good, people wouldn't be too disappointed with them. But that's not what happened, so there is discontentment in the fanbase. We can't "get over it" because they're still affecting the franchise.

That too. It's not like they completely flamed out and missed the playoffs the next year- they won a round. And maybe they would have gotten more if they had a real goalie.
