JVR has made it clear earlier this year with all of the trade speculation that if he was dealt than he'll move on because as much as he loves philadelphia, it's a business.

I'm not sure if I can believe this but it was reported so I figured I'd throw it on here for anyone who missed the segment.
Howard Eskin also broke the news for the Carter and Richards trades last summer right before they happened...

[UPDATE]
This held up trade is apparently to acquire winger, Rick Nash from CBJ.

the reporter in question was the first guy to suggest the Flyers would be trading either Carter or Richards
