Here's what I have for the Flyers heading into next season right now. I'm not saying this is what we will have after the draft and FA's but as of right now this is it.
C - Briere (6.5m), Richard (5.75m), Carter (5.0m)
Giroux (0.822m) and Powe (0.52m) can both be sent down to the minors at any time if we want.
LW - Gagne (5.25m), Cote (0.55m), Carcillo (0.894m)
RW - Hartnell (4.2m), Lupul (4.25m), Asham (0.625m)
D - Timonen (6.333m), Carle (3.438m), Jones (2.75m), Coburn (1.3m), Parent (0.855m)
Even if we include Giroux and Powe into our numbers we have 11 forwards and 5 dmen signed for next season with a combined cap hit of roughly 49 mil. We need 1 forward, 1 dman, and 2 goalies with the remaining 7.7 mil. Nodl has been playing with us for parts of the season and is a cheap 3rd/4th line option at 0.85 mil. Sbisa will most likely be on the team full time for next year (he played the first half of the season with us this year and was returned because of cap reasons and a loggjam at defense) at a cost of just 0.875 mil. That will leave us about 6.25 mil for a starting goalie, a backup goalie, and a bit of cap space for injury call-ups. All of that WITHOUT MOVING A SINGLE "OVER PAID" PLAYER OFF THE CURRENT ROSTER!!!!
Edit: note, this has been copied and pasted from other posts I've made on the trade rumor board because everybody there sems to think they can fleece us in a deal because we can't make the cap limit next season.
