Go Checky!
A 2nd round pick is nice (and after the Comrie trade, is our only pick in the top 2 rounds). Before the Comrie trade, I would have much rather traded Roman in a package to get another goalie (Nabokov would have been my choice, who was available at the time).

In my mind, Roman was no doubt the scapegoat, most notably by Jeremy Roenick who came out publically with what he thought the reason why the Flyers lost to Ottawa 2 years in a row. By now, I hope he looked at all 11 box scores and noticed that his name never appeared in bold letters, signifying a goal scorer.
