Isn't much to say other than overpayment by Philly...seems pretty lateral.

How is this better than waiving Upshall? I just don't understand it.

Carcillo had a lot of upside last year. Scored, fought, and was a beast. BUT what happened...

10 points in 54 GP?

Really?

David Poile was pretty flustered about not being able to reacquire Upshall. I can't believe the Flyers gave up this much for a middle-weight (that takes on all comers) who is, quite frankly, out-of-control most of the time he is on the ice.

Gretz didn't let danny play more that 5 mins in some of those games ( on a ****** 4th line). If your real coach can learn to tame him a little bit, he has some amazing upside offensively

You can't play when you are in the penalty box.

Upshall isn't always in control either. In fact, they took a similar amount of minor penalties this year.

Overpayment by the Flyers, but Carcillo is your typical Flyer. The fans will love him.

Looks like the flyers are going to have some trouble with him then.

Carcillo does have a 3.2 shooting percentage after putting up a 12% the previous 2 years (in limited time), so basically, if he shoots at 12%, he'd be at the same goal number, 3.2 seems abnormally low.

I think Upshall will do quite well in Phoenix.

Stupid. So stupid it hurts.

I'll miss you, Scottie.

And I'll miss you, too, second round pick which apparently causes flagrant VD (which must be why the Flyers refuse to hold onto them).

Flyers fans who don't like this trade have either never seen Carcillo play or they love the new NHL. A lot of people will change their mind.

The most overrated Flyer is gone. The only thing that stings is the 2nd round pick, but we can fetch one(and more) right back this summer by trading Lupul or someone else.

Scottie was a solid energy guy, but he's just not going to be the 30-40 goal scorer some Flyers fans thought/think. IMO, Scottie will max out at 20 goals, that's nothing to be ashamed of, but a far cry from the far fetched predicitions of 30-40 goals and 70+ points.

I am REALLY excited to see what Carcillo brings to the table. I give it about a week for Carcillo to have a cult following in Philadelphia.

I think it is as simple as this.

Holmgren's primary goal was to shed a few hundred thousand dollars in salary so we weren't constantly holding our breath about someone getting hurt. It would allow us to stop yo yo-ing Giroux up and down, and he's earned his permanent spot with us. We couldn't just waive a guy bc we'd be without a body, and as soon as an injury hit, we'd be in the same spot. So we needed to trade a body for a less expensive body. None of the 4th line guys make a enough to accomplish the goal. Trading a guy making 700k for a guy making 650k is pretty worthless.

So you have to look at our top 9. Gags Richards Knuble were never really going anywhere. Hartnell Carter Lupul has been our best line this year, and after a bit of juggling once Briere came back...the line always ends up back together. That leaves Upshall Briere Giroux on the 3rd line. Well Briere can't really be moved, and Giroux is who we are trying to keep. So it's really Upshall.

So we've decided it's Upshall...looking at that 3rd line what do we need? We need some size and some grit...and some skill of course. Briere and Giroux are not big guys, and Carcillo isn't really all that big but he does his job well. He brings what is needed to that line.

I'm willing to bet Homer knows he overpaid here. He overpaid to get the cap room he wanted, and he probably didn't want to trade Upshall, but he got the kind of player he wanted for that line as well. I'm pretty sure when he said to himself "Do I really care about my picks in 3 years right this second?" he realized...he has to do what is best for the team right now.

So we'll see how it works out. I think Flyers fans will love Carcillo, just as we loved Upshall. But will it make us a better team...I have no idea.
