From a story by Tim Panaccio this morning:

All along, various NHL sources have said that Marty Turco would have liked to have become a Flyer this summer.

Ain’t happening.

 

In late June, Turco, a free agent, told ESPN.com that he had turned down a three-year, $6 million contract offer from the Flyers, who denied the offer though they were given permission by the Dallas Stars to contact him in advance of free agency.

We would have loved to go to the Flyers, but it’s not happening," Turco texted CSNPhilly.com late Saturday from Scotland.

The Flyers options in net are forever dwindling. Hope you're not a Leighton-hater (a Leighater?).
