The break up between the Flyers and the coveted but soon-to-be unrestricted free agent defenseman Dan Hamhuis, was suspected to be about money. Maybe even his role in the defensive game plan.
But according to Hamuis’ agent Wade Arnott, the split had nothing to do with the contract.
“We did not present a framework for a contract to Flyers at any point, nor indicate any salary demands,” Arnott told ESPN’s Pierre Lebrun.
The Flyers have traded 23-year-old RFA defenseman Ryan Parent to the Nashville Predators for the rights to 27-year-old defenseman Dan Hamhuis and a conditional selection in the 2011 NHL entry draft.
“Obviously it is sad to leave the Predators,” said Hamhuis, who spent six years in Nashville. “I spent some great years with them and it is great organization to be a part of. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the city of Philadelphia and the Flyers.”
