Once you send Simmonds, who I believe is up for a raise and whomever else back than that becomes counter productive. Basically Phy sends 5.5mill and gets that much in return if not more. As I said, someone will have to take on another contract. Aulie and Gunnarson are not Doughty and Johnson but they are on ELC's and are cheap serviceable dmen and they need bodies back there. This is an easy trade if it is for B Schenn, one of the young goalies and a pic-money in and money out. I don't see Phy letting Leino walk so they will need room for him. I don't want to get in some war of words with you but you have to understand the situation.
Philly can create 2.5 million in cap space alone losing Zherdev(1.5), Shelley(.5), OD(.5)
