It seems that Philly takes the risk: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?id=87614

Not a terrible risk to take. He signs a rookie max which is a two-way contract. He'll likely play in the "A" next year and earn much less. If he makes the Flyers, they'll pay the full NHL salary. But likely he doesn't crack the Flyers' lineup for a year or two.

Apparently he wants to be 6 deep in the depth chart at center in Philly versus Pitts or Vancouver or anywhere else. Go figure?

We'll see.
