Considering he did not negotiate in good faith he should deal with the ramifications which means a possible end to his NHL journeyman career. The payout for his family is shrewd from a business standpoint but what goes around comes around as they say...
I agree with both points here. As I posted previously, it's understandable what Leighton did and why, but like the good Doctor said, he has to take the consequences. It's really a win-win: the Flyers get a quality starter in Bob, and Leighton gets to keep his current address and sock away some money for retirement.
