This just seems a little to steep to give up for Pitkanen In my opinion.
he's a good player for sure, having an abysmel season this year,but there arent too many Flyers that arent. I wonder if Philly and Holmgren would make that deal taking out Jason Smith in that package. He's allready collected his 1st rounder in the Forsberg trade, he might be willing to get another one, but if Holmgren doesnt think theres a player with us much potential atleast on the blueline in this upcomming draft, that has the same or if not more future star potential that Pitkanen has, he probably wont make it.
I got to agree, I dont understand how we get ahead by trading Smith?
