There’s still a bit of mystery as to why Scott Hartnell would waive his no-movement clause just one year into a six-year contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers to accept a trade to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall would only talk about the speed and versatility of R.J. Umberger, for whom Hartnell was traded, and that the two-year difference in their contract term was a factor.

  Geez, signing a long term deal with the Flyers is the kiss of death. G should be looking over his shoulder right about now....when is the last time a Flyer signed a long term deal and played it out in it's entirety? Danny boy came within a year or so...but I honestly can't remember the last time (if ever) this was done.

Umberger's speed?? My God the man could be timed with a sun dial last year. If He is the answer that the Flyers have found in their search for team speed than I do not believe they have watched too many Jackets games lately........

 I agree, for the most part, Ummby has lead in boot disease. His first few steps are brutally slow. on the bright side, once he hits stride, he will not fall.
