That was the monetary speculation in a recent article by Chuck Gormley:

And then there is the issue of unrestricted free agent Ville Leino.

He wants $3.5 million and, despite a late-season swoon that saw him finish with 19 goals and just three in the playoffs, he could get close to that on the open market. The Flyers would like to keep Leino's salary at about $2.5 million, and it could be difficult to bridge that gap between now and July 1.

If Leino is not re-signed, the Flyers could give his ice time to Matt Read, a highly coveted center the club signed out of Bemidji (Minn.) State, outbidding several NHL teams with a one-way, three-year NHL contract that carries a $900,000 cap hit if Read is on the NHL roster.
