Unless they had no shot of trading for them, which seems unlikely given their young assets, then it's a pretty dumb move. This basically ensures he won't be a Flyer, and probably ensures that Voracek has an offer sheet coming his way pretty soon(likely for around $4.7 mil, meaning compensation is only 1+3 and they Flyers are pretty much screwed cap-wise by matching).
