LTIR keeps the Flyers from banking too much, so I wouldnt worry about capgeeks numbers. Capgeek is assuming a lot of things in that $4.5 mill number (Lappy and Walker out for year, Pronger out for a bit longer, bonuses not being met, us running with 21 or 22 players instead of 23). Just know that the Flyers have some wiggle room, but won't be huge players at the deadline. Perhaps flip Zherdev for a guy with a slightly higher salary or something. The could easily take $1.5 extra in a player swap. Perhaps more if Walker and Lappy are def done for the year.
Ha ha ha, stupid Cup-winning pieces of ... oh.
