I very much doubt it's complete BS. As I said, I don't necessarily buy those claims, but the Flyers themselves claimed to be losing money prior to the lockout. And teams with lower payrolls absolutely can turn a positive profit. The Flyers have a large operation...they pay for lots of facilities, lots of people work for them...
Hell...Buffalo doesn't do any field scouting work any more. That's cash they get to hold onto that someone like the Flyers is pushing out the door.
