As a Cane fan I would do the same trade over again.

I felt Sami would fit in well in Philly as a Lehtinen type in Hitchcock's system but he simply made too much money to be a third line grinder on the Canes team. He was a great offensive player up until a 2002 game in Anaheim where his stick broke and punctured his hand; he has yet to regain his scoring touch.

Brendl, (believe it or not) played very hard and well in his recent call up before having his collar bone broken a few nights ago. He may not turn out to be what he was hyped to be but I feel he will be a quality NHL player.
