Yeah, pretty much. If you know Timonen is done after next season and you know you're not going to win the cup next year, there's no reason to re-sign him. In fact, if Timonen is as good as most here seem to think he is, it might even handicap the Flyers for 2014-2015. Everyone will be used to having Timonen to eat up the hard minutes and QB the power-play, and when he's gone there will undoubtedly be a drop-off while guys learn to play without him and the younger players step up to take his minutes.
