Flyers fan here...

Any sense of why this took so long to come to light?

Betts was playing with the flyers through the preseason and practicing with the team up until he was waived, so if there was an injury, it was either undiagnosed by the team or minor enough that he was playing through it. I don't really see why the team would have to "explain" themselves.

This isn't a case of cap circumvention--the Flyers have Matt Walker's 1.7 million ready to dump to the AHL if needed. The team was trying to free up a contract spot for Couturier.
