The Flyers have acquired toughness in Dan Carcillo from the Phoenix Coyotes for Scottie Upshall and a second round pick. I think the Coyotes did well in this trade with Upshall and a second round pick but the Flyers do well as well by adding a high energy physical player for a guy, Upshall, who really was lost behind all of the other Flyer forwards.

Also, the Leafs have traded Antopov to NY Rangers for a second round pick plus another conditional pick. Brian Burke wanted a first round pick but he had to settle for a second round pick, which could easily be a mid-second round pick. The conditional pick is probably dependent on whether the Flyers make the playoffs or not.
