Really surprised by this, all speculation was he was close/had already signed with Philadelphia. Does this put Philadelphia into trade discussions now for a Top 6 forward?
This is now the third time I've posted this in 5 minutes... but:

I don't believe that this means he is leaving the Flyers.

He's never been a player given to granting "hometown discounts."

I believe his came will present the Flyers with the opportunity to match the best offer on the table--since he genuinely did seem to enjoy his time here, and he's basically pencilled in on the top line--which is more than he'll get from most contending teams.
