He has an option to control his own fate in terms of trades. The Flyers have the option to buy him out. Realistically, neither side should be offended if the other exercises their option.
My question is, does he just retire when he's bought out, and join Lappy as Assistant Director of Player Development?
I don't think so. I think there are teams out there that would give him a two year deal worth $3m or more per season.
