How is that a fair deal for Philly?

Maybe if you move the retention removed the D prospect for an A prospect

This is not about the trade - but just saying, Johansen is certainly not a "D prospect". Yes, a late bloomer for a 1st round pick. But after a career year in AHL, he looks to be NHL ready. Small potatoes, but right now, I would say he is at least a "C prospect" with a potential to be an everyday bottom d-pair (for cheap)

I guess that’s fair, I used to consider him as an A prospect once when I was doing a keeper league, but he definitely hasn’t panned out the way I hoped, I guess he should be ready this year or next to be a 3D

That Florida trade is egregiously bad. The whole reason the idea of them eating 4x$5M on Bob's contract came about is because they're in cap hell this season because the Keith Yandle & Scott Darling buyouts are costing a $6.575M cap hit this season - next year the Darling buyout penalty expires and the Yandle penalty drops to $1.24M, so they'll have more room to work with if they can get through this year.

This deal does none of that - you have them giving up Bob *with the full retention* AND sending away Anton Lundell after a 44-point rookie season, only to give them Lars Eller ($3.5M cap hit), Conor Sheary ($1.5M) plus Hendrix Lapierre and a 3rd. Lapierre is a decent prospect with nowhere near the ceiling of Lundell, and adding a 3rd doesn't make up for that value; on top of that, this deal winds up more or less cap neutral for Florida because they're taking in $5M of Eller & Sheary this year while retaining $5M on Bobrovsky. The dollars don't work and the ask is insane.
