Actually, since his salary cap hit would be pro-rated, you'd be very surprised by what we can afford.

There are 193 days in a regular NHL season. Each player gets a specific daily cap hit, which is there overall cap hit divided by 193.

So if you want to find out how much of a cap hit Ray Whitney would have now, you take the base cap hit per day ($18,394.00) and multiply that by the amount of days left in the season (80 right now). Whitney's salary cap with us right now if we traded for him would be roughly $1.47m.
Not really. The Flyers will spend up to the cap with bonuses and LTIR. The cap is calculated daily, therefore on any given day of a year, our salaries can not exceed $56.8 million. Ray Whitney would cost us $1.6 in terms of how much our club would actually pay him, but his cap hit is to large for our club to remain under the daily limit.
