Ten days before the trade deadline and about twenty days since Forsberg finally looked like he had found a skate that worked (enough for him to participate at a level close to his capacity), the Philadelphia Flyers complete the trade. The one-for-four trade seems like a good ratio… and plenty of young talent (will they have to ride out lump-along Derian Hatcher?). The only disappointment I register is when Ed Snider said that this wasn’t a rebuilding process? “We don’t understand what rebuilding is,” Snider said. How on earth can a team not consider this a rebuilding process — not one of the four will be Forsberg quality for several years.
