I'm not even arguing it purely for the sake of whether or not the Flyers could do it, like I said, I'm arguing it because I haven't heard anything that suggests that the trade would be legal in the first place. And if you've already done this research and have something of value to share, please share it!
EDIT: BTW, if you're arguing (still without citing anything) that Gary Bettman has the power to do anything he wants as long as he determines it to be in the best interests of the game, regardless of whether or not it's in the league's bylaws, then what would stop him from quashing the trade to begin with, seeing as it's an obvious attempt to circumvent the rule that you can't trade players who've signed offersheets?
