The article below uses the assumption that "some" players on the Flyers roster will be asked to restructure thier contracts. I have this information from a contact...

I was messing with the numbers (cause I was bored) and I have come to the conclusion that *IF* JR, Primeau, Markov, Zeus and Desi restructure thier contracts, and buyout TA, JL, DB, we could have a payroll of 30M and 19 players signed. (Note: other players could be asked instead of *these* I have chosen to use as examples.

By restructuring, I would halve JR's contract(4.9M) to 2.5M and also Primeau to 2.5M from 3.4M. Markov 2.4M to 1.8M, Zeus 2.1M to 1.6M and Desi from 2.3M to 1.5M. NOW, for how long etc etc, ???

John LeClair $9----------------$6.8 million----------------------Bought out
Jeremy Roenick $6.5-----------$4.9 million----------------2.5m
Tony Amonte $5.9-------------$4.5million-----------------------Bought out
Keith Primeau $4.5-------------$3.4 million----------------2.5m
Danny Markov $3.1 ------------$2.4 million----------------1.8m
Eric Desjardins $3. (P.O.)------ $2.3 million----------------1.5m
Michal Handzus $2.8-----------$2.1 million-----------------1.6m
Donald Brashear $2.3-----------$1.7 million---------------------Bought out
Mike Knuble $2 ----------------$1.5 million----------------1.5m
Sami Kapanen $2---------------$1.5 million----------------1.5m
Turner Stevenson $1.7----------$1.3 million---------------1.3m
Joni Pitkanen $1.2--------------$912,000------------------912k
Antero Niittymaki $500,000 -----$380,000------------------380k

--------------------10 Players =$20,312,000.00------------$15,112,000.00

Add Estimated payroll

Johnsson 2.0+
Gagne 2.0+
Radio 1.2
Esche 2.0+
Carter 1.2
Richards 1.2
Seidenberg-? 500k?
Sharp-? 500k

19 players -------------------------------------------------$26,912,000.00

Basically I figure 30,000,000.00 to 31,000,000.00 (+/-) Walking into the season.

One or two UFA's are a possibility. Also, just for conversations sake, BC would definatly, stick it to the debs and go over any soft cap to obtain Neidermayer. Other names I would like to see would be Aucoin, Hamrlik and one or two more.
