Sam at the Inq. posted this, too:

The Flyers are also expected to send Lasse Kukkonen to the Phantoms, and Darroll Powe could also be sent to the AHL team.

The Flyers need room to add Briere's $6.5 million salary and be under the $56.7 million cap.

Metropolit, who has been a dependable penalty-killer, had 14 pounts (four goals, 10 assists) as a fourth-line center and was minus-1 in the plus-minus rankings. Vaananen, who had 10 points (one goal, nine assits) and provided a physical presence on defense, was a plus-7.

If they clear waivers by 11 a,m. tomorrow, they can be sent to the AHL Phantoms and their salaries would come off the cap. It is also possible that one (or both) of the players will clear waivers but remain with the Flyers.

In all probability, the Flyers will have to lose the salaries of three of the four players - Metropolit, Vaananen, Kukkonen and Powe - to make room for Briere.
