Not the smartest thing(since pronger is a big example), but MAB was trying to be a "team" player. I'm sure the players union is going to want to give him a stern talking to. But I also wouldn't be surprised if the flyers paid him his NHL money off the books. The flyers, by and large, take care of their own.

And with his good showing, he's certainly going to get a contract
What exactly went on with the Leighton back injury thing? I remember when it happened but don't remember the facts (I was pretty deeply entrenched in my defense of Homer and Leighton mindset throughout that whole ordeal). Did he lie about it or did he just not tell them about it?
