The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired defenceman Matt Carle and the San Jose Sharks' third round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for defenceman Steve Eminger, winger Steve Downie and Tampa Bay's fourth round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft

Makes no sense on Tampa's behalf. Eminger isn't that great, and Carle's potential as a puck-rusher is sky high. Less than 3 months ago he was the focal point of the Boyle trade, even if he didn't play well you have to imagine he'd be worth keeping around. Downie is just another potential headache.

The Lightning are quickly becoming a joke they way they are being run.

Good lord that is an awful deal for the Lightning, although that's two teams that have given up on Carle.
