Winnipeg was after him? I'm not surprised by the notion, but surprised they actually went through with it. Cheveldayoff is seemingly trying to bring the team along slowly -- you should see the Jets forum, it's blowing up because Chevy didn't sign anyone of signifigane this offseason.
I don't understand the "greed *******" thing either. He would have made 5M+ more in the KHL, tax-free, living the easy life. He's a good fit with the Flyers. A better fit than Pittsburgh.
