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.
This is also incredibly true. My money would be that he ends up on Philly, but if he leaves I wouldn't be surprised to see him in Detroit. I've seen it suggested here, but don't see the Rangers or Penguins in play. Both teams have moved on from him despite having some great moments/years in those places.
