Now the whole national team is wondering about news across the Atlantic that Flyers are demanding him to return immediatelly for surgery. He's in good health according to the team doctor, playing once again superbly (shutout), and has no contract with Flyers! To me it sounds very much like some other team will get one helluva goalie very easily. Poooor judgement from Flyers.
