Any time you are giving a contract in excess of one million dollars to a player, you should be covering all bases. The Flyers went on the presumption that Leighton was healthy and no medical check was performed. That's their fault.
It's actually incumbent on the player to disclose any injuries, and only after that disclosure is the team on the hook to perform tests.
