Danny would be a fool to waive his NMC, as the Flyers would most certainly buy him out if it comes to that. He's owed only a paltry 5M, a drop in the bucket to Snider.
And while the kid thing might not mean much to you, at this stage in Danny's career he's alluded to his children being VERY important to him. I'm not sure if he'd be willing to not see them @ all during the hockey season.
They'd get much more than a 2nd.
And if he doesn't waive his NMC, don't buy him out. Drop him to the 3rd line wing spot.
And like most players at this stage of their careers, winning a cup is very important to him.
There's a few teams that are contenders that need 2nd line centers
