How do you feel about the Philadelphia Flyers 2015 trade deadline?

Happy with what Ron Hextall did on Monday?

Just two deals for the Philadelphia Flyers at this 2015 NHL trade deadline, but it sure feels like more than that, as the two longest-tenured players on the team were each shipped out in different deals.

First it was the Friday night move that saw defenseman Kimmo Timonen sent to the Chicago Blackhawks, where Kimmo will close out his career in an attempt to win the Stanley Cup that's alluded him so far in his career. The Flyers got a pretty solid return for a guy who hasn't played a game all season, grabbing a pair of draft picks, both of which could turn into second-round picks if Chicago goes deep and Kimmo stays healthy.

Then early on Monday morning -- could probably be called Sunday night, really -- the Flyers traded away Braydon Coburn, who was probably their best healthy defenseman, to the Tampa Bay Lightning. It's hard to disagree with the return: a first-round pick, a third-round pick, and a roster player in defenseman Radko Gudas.

What did you think of the deadline, though? Do you think the Flyers did enough? Did they get good enough return for Timonen and Coburn, and do you like how they helped themselves set up for the future?

Let us know, both in the poll below and in the comments.
