Not sure how to feel. Short-term, love it. Long-term, we'll see

This is THE player I wanted Dean to get. I kept an eye on Philly for awhile now and figured there's a chance for something to happen.

It's shocking really.

Hard to lose a player like Brayden Schenn. But Mike Richards is a player he would hope to become.

Job well done, Dean. Job well done.

Clifford made Simmer expendable. Dean wants to contend for the cup now.

Stings a little to lose Schenn but since I'm a huge fan of Lokti it stings a lot less.

Wow impressive. Schenn might have been a year or two away from having an impact.

Need to dump Smyth and Penner and this will be a scary good team in LA. Plenty of kids to fill these spots.

Richards is a perfect fit behind Kopitar.

The worst thing about this is that Eklund was right.

Who takes Simmonds' spot?

Loktionov? Natural center, not physical, but could put up points.
Moller? Same thing.

Have to give to get...I think Schenn may be better long term, but I can't complain about this trade. Richards brings certainty at the #2 C, and we instantly take a step forward. Awesome day . I know I'll be buying a jersey

I'm afraid that losing Schenn will bite us in the ass. Boy, I hope I'm wrong.

Dean felt the pressure and he didn't fold and **** it up. I'm happy. I never wanted Schenn. We now have someone to actually take the pressure off of Kopi. And our PK will be tops in the league and our PP should get a boost too.

My only problem is now what? Right now we're looking at this:

Penner-Kopi-Williams
Smyth-Richards-Brown
Clifford-Stoll-Richardson
Parse-Lewis-Westgarth

If we trade Smyth, we need to fill that #2 LW hole. I'd be more than fine to see Smyth traded for depth players and then have Dean sign Jussi Jokinen for the 2nd line.

Lastly

This is just a stupid horrific trade. Richards has one of the worst contracts in all of the NHL. 5.75 freaking cap hit till the dawn of time for a 65pt player.

A 65 pt player who had one great year then dropped in production 25%!!!

For a 65pt player we give up the number one prospect in all of hockey and a guy who could be a rock on our 3rd line forever. O yea and a 2nd round pick!!!

Stupid/terrible trade. Stupid beyond belief.

What's worse is we're stuck with him for a decade. Amazingly stupid.

And what really is annoying is that you know the Flyers knew they had made two stupid signings with both Richards and Carter. So we're the morons that bailed them out.
