    Default In retrospect.. Knowing what you know today....

    Would you still trade Schenn, Simmonds and a second round pick for Richards? I am torn, on one hand he did help us win 2 Cups, but on the other we gave up a lot and am stuck with a 5.8M cap hit for another 4-5 years.

    Would you do it again?

    As much as I hated to see Simmonds go, I think most here would've traded their soul for one SC, let alone two!

    It was always going to be a now vs later deal where the potential for LA was going to be better in the short term and for Philly in the long term.

    Plus, you have no idea the way things unfold if you don't have Richards. Maybe they don't take the chance on Carter, maybe Schenn and Simmonds (well Simmonds anyway) don't blossom like they have in the Flyers, etc.

    Here's a better question, the team has 2 Cups in 3 years, why the second guessing? Just enjoy the now. I believe the rule is if you win the Cup, you don't get to complain about anything for 5 years. You still have till 2019.

    We had zero Cups before the trade. We now have two Cups, more than the other three west coast teams combined. Every trade we ever made recently I make again.

    This thread is at least 20 years premature. Can we time capsule it?

    Knowing what we know now, why wouldn't we make the trade?

    This assumes we would not have won without Richards.
