On the eve of the NHL draft, the Philadelphia Flyers have made a pair of trades involving arguably two of their best players. Jeff Carter is now a Columbus Blue Jacket. He goes there for Jakub Voracek, the 8th pick overall in the draft and a 3rd round pick.
The Flyers then sent their captain Mike Richards to LA for Wayne Simmonds, Saskatoon's Brayden Schenn and a 2nd rounder.
With the money saved in those deals, they were then able to sign free agent goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to a nine year, 51 million dollar contract. Is Bryzgalov really the answer to the Flyers goaltending woes. I don't know. Its safe to say the team will have a different look to them next year.
