Sounds like we can expect the Tony DeAngelo trade to Carolina to happen today. Philadelphia will retain 50% of the contract and the return will likely be a mid level prospect. #FueledByPhilly #LetsGoCanes #NHL #NHLTwitter pic.twitter.com/zny5CEC89J

The deal was for the Flyers to retain 50% of DeAngelo’s salary and receive a prospect in return.
Why wasn’t it?

Especially considering that the Hurricanes had traded DeAngelo’s autonomy rights to the Flyers.
The NHL didn’t like the fact that the contract was going back to Carolina at half price, as if there was an agreement between the two teams.
However, the Flyers don’t have the same general manager as they did then, now that Daniel Brière is in charge.
In short, the NHL’s reservations would have forced the two teams involved in the transaction to put the brakes on talks and the announcement of the deal.
Well, from what we understand, it’s simply because DeAngelo has been a member of the Philadelphia Flyers for a year now.
As planned, the Flyers would retain 50% of DeAngelo’s salary, while receiving a prospect in return.
Per Bill Meltzer, The Flyers are-were to receive Massimo Rizzo from the #Canes for retaining 50% of Tony DeAngelo contract.

DeAngelo is likely to be very happy if all this materializes, given that he wasn’t Flyers head coach John Tortorella’s favorite – on the contrary.
