Now, he's always been so waffley on the whole contract thing that I could see Philadelphia thinking he was all set to come to Philly, though.
Didn't he go to arbitration? I remember Lamouriello didn't think he deserved that much money, but Niedermayer ended up winning a 1-year deal for $7 million. Unfortunately that happened to be the year of the lockout so he never saw any of that money.

I could be wrong though.
