Flyers trade a prospect's rights to Nashville to free up space.
Rinaldo and Hostetter are sent back to CHL.
Then they sign Betts.
That brings the Flyers to 51 contracts, but Rinaldo and Hostetter don't count.
That puts the useful contracts at 49. Holmgren said he wanted to leave a slot open for options. That's why he waited to make the trade with Nashville before he signed Betts.
Flyers lose Jones on re-entry waivers to make it 48.
Kaspar is allowed to walk making it 47.
That is of course, if Kaspar's terminated contract doesn't remain on the list.
