BREAKING: Flyers Trade Cutter Gauthier to Anaheim for Jamie Drysdale

The Philadelphia Flyers’ rebuild has taken a drastic turn, as the team has traded forward Cutter Gauthier to the Anaheim Ducks:

At first glance, the first reaction is a big, “But why?” The reason, it appears, is simple: he didn’t want to play in Philadelphia:

There was a rumor that began in the summer and continued into the season that Gauthier may not, in fact, have wanted to play for head coach John Tortorella. The choice not to attend camp with the Flyers this off-season seemed to give some credence to that line of thinking, but the organization has named Gauthier as fundamental piece of the rebuild.

Flyers GM Danny Briere came on The Press Row Show at the end of November and even mentioned at that time that Gauthier could have gotten time down the stretch at the end of this season.

Briere is set to speak during the first intermission, while Comcast Spectacor chairman Dan Hilferty will join The Press Row Show for the second intermission tonight:
