I just have a hard time believing that if Holmgren made it known he wanted Vaanenen a Flyer, and he still opted to go overseas to the KHL. Something, somewhere...it just doesn't add up for me.
It wouldn't have happened. The Flyers could have filed a grievance or injunction or whatever the process is. The league let the Devils get away with it, so there is precident for a double standard, and the Flyers could likely sue the league. Not saying that is absolutely what would have happened, but the
league wasn't going to make the Flyers forfeit games.
Humour me. What do YOU think the league would have done?
