Unfortunately for Philadelphia, the price tag was believed to be in the same ballpark of what Nashville wanted (pre-offer sheet) for Shea Weber: a combination of Sean Couturier, James van Riemsdyk or Brayden Schenn and more. The astronomical price tag is likely why the Yandle rumors died down in a hurry and the Flyers decided to make the one-for-one van Riemsdyk for Luke Schenn deal the next day."

Now, Panaccio wants to bring us back a year and a half and trumpet a story he didn't have at the time of trade? And he breaks this big "story" as a Tweet as opposed to a real article?

I'm not buying it.
Stolen from another forum.

I don't but it either.
