In a nutshell (and let me preface by saying that I don't necessarily agree with all of this assessment), but Flyers management began to question Mike's ability to lead them to the promised land, there was speculation of a rift with Pronger, he was good friends with a then traded Carter, he partied a lot, his reputation for fighting the media was growing, etc.

Like I said, I'm sure 80% of it wasn't true, but once Carter was traded, the Flyers just decided to not run any risk of malcontent in the locker room.
