Also, has there ever been any official word on what actually happened? Or since the summer has it been pretty quiet on the situation?
There were a lot of unsubstantiated rumors.

I'm not entirely convinced they had a lot to do with it. When you look at the age of several key Flyers, the number of real prospects, and the number of draft picks...something had to give, soon. The team was on a precipice. The trades fixed most of those problems, and probably had a whole lot to do with the organization's reasoning.
