I'd say that all this shows is if you don't live up to your end of the deal, you're out. The Flyers were paying JVR $4.25m a year for six years in the extension for potential they hoped he'd reach by the time the extension kicked in. He didn't perform (for a multitude of reasons, injuries not withstanding) but that's that...

Richards and Carter obviously weren't acting in accordance to how the organization had hoped when they expressed to them with those contracts that they wanted them around for their entire careers. So they went too.

The Flyers are always willing to pay, I think the players will realize that you can't expect to sign a fat long contract and not live up to it. You'll need to perform.
