But if he is here, we have Richards, Carter, and Handzus.
Now, I don't know much about Richards and Carter, other than they played for Canada in the WJC, and I don't think that they made it for being a checking center. From people who post on this board, and others, it seems that anytime that someone talked about the Flyers making a deal for a goalie, they wanted one of the 2 junior kids. So we have depth at the center position to deal from, so why not make a trade that could help us win a cup?
I guess the question that I have to ask is this:
Do you want to go through the next 3 weeks with someone who has played in 2 NHL games against non playoff teams and risk not finishing 1st or 2nd?
I say no. You saw what happened last season by missing out on the top seed. And if you go into the next few weeks with Little and Antero, then we are not going to finish 1 or 2. And then we can play the Senators/Leafs/Devils in 2 straight series, and see how that goes.
