I could careless what happened when he left, he was run out of town by backstabbing teammates who should have been thankful to have a quality goalie.
Maybe, but the situation was what it was...and Cechmanek's problems have followed him elsewhere. So, to paint it as he's some innocent lamb and it was just the Flyers organization that treated him poorly...doesn't hold up.

It was well established while Cechmanek was here that he was introverted, didn't really hang out with people, so on and so forth. And that's fine and all, but it also means that there's a pretty good chance he didn't have anyone really speaking up for him within that room.

You'll also note that I think he was excellent (though flawed) while he was here between the pipes, and that the problems with those teams were not of his making. However, the reason he wasn't kept around was entirely of his own making.
