Timonen? Has a NMC
Pronger? Has a NMC.
Grioux? Has a low CAP hit already

The two players with big contracts that DIDN'T have clauses, are the ones that got traded. Giroux had established himself has their top center as well.

Mike and Jeff would probably still be on the Flyers if there was no salary constraints on teams.
So because the gm says it in the media it makes it gospel? Just like Lombardi said the kings were not going to go after brad Richards, right? I'm sure flyers fans would have loved their gm to come out and say they traded their captain because the owner had a mental breakdown and decided they had to get bryzgalov at any cost. The flyers DID NOT HAVE to trade carter or Richards. They could have easily stuck with bobrovsky if they wanted to in order to keep the team in tact. You're looking at the trades in a vacuum without taking into account the extenuating circumstances that surrounded the situation.
