Jones might stay but will have to take a pay cut because nobody will give him 2.75 again. Defence or Knuble will leave before Lupul. The Flyers best line is Hartnell Carter Lupul right now so that won't be broke up any time soon.
Next years defence will probably look like this
JVR Richards Gagne
Hartnell Carter Lupul
Giroux Briere Upshall
Cote Metropolit Asham
Giroux and JVR will get 1.75 combined.
Upshall won't get much if he's resigned, he doesn't have the point totals. About 1.75 for him.
3.5 million is what about is needed.
Kuukkonen, Alberts, Knuble, Vanannen and Jones frees up about 8.5 million.
They could resign Jones, keep Vanannen or shop for a new defenceman. Something will defintley happen with the defence when Parent gets back.
have you missed the part where JvR could come in at a 2+ million dollar cap hit?
and, there's more i could harp on, but i'm just gonna stick to the obvious:
getting rid of lupul makes the most sense because of his contract that kicks in next year at a plain stupid number, regardless what goal scoring pace he's on. he won't be missed because this team has fire power at forward blazing straight out of their *******.
