How did they get fleeced? They aren't making the play-offs, they aren't going to win anytime soon.. They get a very very good defensive prospect, a decent young player and two picks. And Forsberg will probably resign with them in the summer. Their season is already lost, why not get the assets you can?

And when Forsberg sings with the Flyers this summer how is it going to look?

Bottom line is that the Flyers get a prospect, a third/fourth liner and two draft picks.... like I mentioned the draft picks are going to be very low in the first and third rounds so they are going to a crap shoot anyway...I just think that Philly couldve gotten alot more for him then they did
