I'm kind of glad, as I like Kulemin I'm glad he didn't get traded, but I would have liked to see Richards on the list. Guess the other Richards will have to do! :p
I was about to call you delusional too, but then I saw the key word, "individually". I at first thought you meant both of them. For one of the Flyer players... maybe.
However, one season is not a "proven" 30 goal scorer. Then again, Philly clearly is throwing away good players just to clear cap space, so it's not surprising they offered that. I won't say Burke's a complete idiot, but Carter is just below Crosby, Ovechkin, and Stamkos in terms of goal scoring over the past 4 seasons. That's a hell of a miss if you ask me.
