The union between a team and a player always ends badly when there's a contract buyout, but respect is still required. The Flyers missed out on Tony DeAngelo.

In an official team press release, the defenseman was belittled by his former bosses in a rather disturbing way. We still can't believe what we read.
"DeAngelo produced points at a reasonable rate (11 goals, 42 points in 70 games) and brought a certain intensity and physical competitiveness. However, the Flyers had trouble keeping the puck out of their net when he was on the ice."

Incredibly shocking comments from a team. It's got to be hard enough to be redeemed for a 2nd time, then to have the team make such a distasteful post.
42 points on a bottom-of-the-table team is more than "reasonable" for a defenseman, and they could also have failed to point out his defensive shortcomings.
This lack of class will certainly not help Daniel Brière attract free agents in the years to come.
