The Flyers dealt their biggest regular season goal scorer, Jeff Carter to Columbus. The move was rumored for months, so it came with to the surprise of only a few that don't follow the team all that closely.

Four days later forward Darroll Powe was sent to Minnesota.
Then on July 1st, Kris Versteeg was traded to the Florida Panthers.
Word on the street was that Danny Briere and Chris Pronger co-hosted a packing party for the other veteran players in anticipation of their own moves... OK, well, not really.
The Flyers made these moves to begin a new era. In the process they fetched new faces, young talent, draft picks to stock up on prospects, and cap space to sign a new goaltender and other free agents.
