That's a great question. It would have been insurance, but ...
He was under contract with the Flyers when treatment started. At the same time, being a degenerative condition, the Flyers' insurance carrier could have tried to weasel out of it (maybe?). I'd guess the Flyers insurance premiums went up this season thanks in part to paying for Emery's hip.
