Cote will stay in the lineup for the remainder of the season mostly because of his low caphit, Kalinski for example earns around $800K. If the Flyers replace Cote with Kalinski, they would lose the capspace they got from the Upshall trade. That capspace is important as it allows to call up players without putting someone on IR or shuffling the lineup (for example replacing Giroux with Ross).

Once the playoffs start the salary cap isn't operative and the Flyers can add as many players as they want. Someone like Kalinski or Ross will play instead of Cote at the 4th line.
Makes sense, it's not like it's a serious cap hit. Holmgren is just to loyal, which is both good and bad.

Yeah, I would imagine has a approx 18 games left this season.

Not necessarily a bad thing.

Also, would you guys like to see Flyers winning the cup Red Wings -style or Ducks -style?
Asham is on the 4th line, and he can fight. Carcillo plays the 3rd (where I suspect he'll stay) and he can fight.

So long as they win, like Charlie says...who cares? Does it really matter?

Frankly, I like my chances of winning with less short handed situations. Yes, were good on the PK, but it's going to start burning us sooner or later.
