The Flyers may amnesty Bryz, but it sure as hell won't be in favor of Michael Leighton. I mean, seriously.

That cannot be overlooked. I believe the Flyers have too much loyalty towards him and trading him would hurt our chances at a cup. He stays.
Might need a reminder what Simon Gagne has been doing the last two years. Forcing him to either accept a trade or be claimed by the Oilers doesn't exactly reek of loyalty. Worked out for him though.
