However, it would make more sense to clear out dead weight than it would be to deal Briere and JVR. We'd still have Lupul and Jones on our payroll, and that is no good. Even if we traded Lupul+ for Harding and waived Jones, we'd have several roster spots to fill. Conversely, if we keep those guys, we'd have no cap space to do anything.
you could still make a deal sending Lupul out for a physical dman that cuts cap space.

I'd do the new deal from a Flyers perspective
