Kapanen traded to the Flyers

Sami Kapanen and minor leaguer Ryan Bast, were traded to the Philadelphia Flyers today for forwrad Pavel Brendl and Defenseman Bruno St. Jacques. While this seems to be a depth move for the Flyers due to their many injured players, I have to wonder what this does to their ability to acquire a bigger name closer to the trade deadline as Brendl is a name mentioned in almost every trade.
