You got some draft picks for a piece that didn't fit the plan.
As a young goaltender, Bobrovsky needs playing time to develop. With Bryzgalov in the mix (like him or not), that was not going to be the case in Philadelphia.
A veteran back-up will be brought in at a lesser cost. The veteran back-up will play the 15 - 20 games that will be needed from him... those same games that weren't going to be enough for Bobrovsky at this stage of his career.
