I think you misunderstood his post--he was suggesting that the Flyers were leaking rumors about a JVR-to-Columbus deal to drive up the cost of Nash-to-NYR--in other words, to get Sather to jump quickly and overpay.

(I think it is a bit of a stretch, personally. The benefit to the Flyers of the Rangers losing an extra pick or prospect is not worth the risk of alienating JVR.)
