I can't blame a career backup/minor leaguer for cashing in when he got the chance.
The flyers don't do that to players. He would of been placed on IR after his surgery, and the flyers would of ridden with boosh and bob, then he would of been given a legit chance at claiming his job back.
Homer gave him 1 game, saw that he was rusty, and sent him to the AHL. Thats what you get for lieing. Not to mention he was trying to trade him.
