Flyers fan here. You guys will be very satisfied with Ryan Potulny. Ryan has had alot of bad luck this year. He hada bursa sac removed from his foot which cost him to miss training camp. If he attended camp IMO he would have made the Flyers opening night roster. Potulny is just one of these forwards that got lost in the shuffle with the Flyers, Overshadowed by more well known young forwards. Potulny will flourish now with more Ice Time in Edmonton, a fact even Paul Holmgren knows being evident the trade to a western conference team. POtulny was a goal a game oin his last year at college and IMO could be a solid 30 goal guy at this level. If you were to ask me what prospect i liked better Patrick Sharp or Ryan Potulny I would say Potulny every day of the week. Good luck Edmonton.

Well, right now we've got too many forwards already, so I have my concerns about how much ice time he'll get

I think a lot of this trade speaks to our depth on the blueline, and really nothing more. With Cody Wild turning pro last year, and Taylor Chorney following suit this fall, it's a natural move to upgrade at a another position. I liked Danny Syrvet when he played with London, but he never seemed to grasp the pro game. Maybe he will with time, and somewhere else. Maybe one of those moves that doesn't seem like much at the time, but has an impact later on.
