If the Tennessean is correct, once signing Hall and Erat, they'll have just a little bit of wiggle room to maybe make a move during the season and still get the max revenue share money. So in other words, they would probably only trade Erat for a player making the same money. So that takes your scenario off the table, IMO.
Handzus is rumored (elsewhere?) to be on the trading block due to the Cap. The Flyers want a winger. Guess we have one here, right?
Now... this is assuming we sign Erat for at near his QO. That should fit Philly fine I think. A promising young fire like Erat for an older (but still servicable) center that they need to unload because of Cap$.
But, to satisfy my curiosity, don't we have Erat's rights regardless? So we could technically trade his rights to Philly?
