You make it seem like you disagree with me, yet in a previous post say the same exact thing that I was saying.

I never said he had no value. I said it's completely possible he had no trade value with us being in our current position.

The bigger problem is that the Flyers never should have been in a position where they were forced to waive Nodl. Going into the season at 50 contracts isn't smart. And that's on top of the addiction to running at the salary cap.
I know.
