From an article after the deal went down:
However, there was more behind this move than that. By moving Upshall, who makes 1.2 million, and getting Carcillo, who makes 900,000, the Flyers freed up some cap space so they can have some wiggle room to move players up and down when injuries occur.
This move keeps the Flyers from having to send Claude Giroux down again if they need another defenseman.
