Here's another thing, the Flyers have not one day this year had an active roster salary cap number exceeding 56.7 mil. By your logic Jester with the Flyers getting back ALL of the salaries for ALL players on LTIR and essentially removing them from all consideration then the Flyers have accrued some significant cap room and COULD right now have an active roster salary cap in excess of 56.7 mil. We shold only have to trim around a mil in unpaid cap salary with the cap space we've accrued We could get under that limit simply by sending down the Phantoms we've recently called up. Why then are we talking about sending Sbisa back and sending down Kukkonen, a player whiom we had to place on waivers and have pass through waivers before we could use him to get under? The truth is that we HAVE NOT accrued any cap cusion. LTIR eats up any cap cusion you have for that day BEFORE you are in consideration for and injury cap relief. Plus you only get cap relief for the amount you are over.
