I think we could've gotten more for OKT.

I sorta knew Philly won the trade in the start, a useless D for a useful forward, especially in the playoffs with almost a point per game.

Looking back, we definitely lost this deal, and it showed once the playoffs came around.

(I love seeing floaters going to the press box for a game but apparently Lavvy doesn't)

After watching the entire team do nothing but aim for Khudobin's chest Sat might I wouldn't mind seeing some moves like his you tube clips indicate he could be capable of. A change of scenery may be just what he needs.
I've enjoyed rereading this thread. There were alot more guys who didn't care about the trade than I remember. I'm not totally ashamed of my views at the time. Did you see some of Wolfys posts? Start at around page 15. Hillarity at it's best

He will not play in the minors yet, he's still in Detroit and had talks with their coaching staff and GM. He will head for the Olympics in a couple of days and play at least four games for Norway. The Detroit coaches will take a look at him there, and since they may have to move other defensemen because of cap issues he could be recalled already
Well he only played 3, and cross-checked a guy in the head.

Yeah, Flyers are definitely the losers in this trade.

Well it looks as if Wolfy changed his mind judging by this post in another thread:

But I don't agree that OKT is not NHL caliber, if so he wouldn't be an NHL veteran with 6 seasons behind him. His problem has been injuries, and he has to slow things down in the future.
