Wasn't trying to be Noam Chomsky here.
That's just it though...it's a non-point, and when someone pointed that out you went about debating 'em. Should we ignore rumors because so often they don't come to fruition? Sure...but then sometimes they do: Pronger. Kaberle may very well be here if not for a NTC.

That isn't a "yeah-but," that means the Flyers had real interest and a real offer and if not for a bit of context a deal would have gone down.

The real point isn't that deals don't go down all the time...it's that the Flyers always have their fingers in the jar, and that's why these rumors are always out there.
