The cap-acrobatics required for this would mean that gomez being sent down in my opinion.
As has been stated plenty of times before, not that big a problem.
PK + Price 2011 = 3.6M
PK + Price 2012 = 10M at most, maybe less if PK is signed to a 2 yr RFA contract instead of a big multi year deal.
So, if the 2011 team spends close to the cap, need to find 6.4M for 2012.
Goodbye Spacek (3.8) Gill (2.25) Moen (1.5). Replace all three with 1M players and that's 4.5 saved. If cap goes up by another 2M then it's all good.
I agree that for 2012, trading Gomez and adding a $4-5M forward who actually gives the team close to $4-5M production makes the whole thing a lot easier but it can be done even if the team keeps Gomez through the end of his contract.
And if by some miracle the team trades Spacek now and then gets to the cap limit in 2011, the Flyers have always been able to get rid of the one guy they don't want in order to make the salaries fit later on. No way I would ever want the team to forgo signing a useful player this offseason on the off chance they have to figure out salaries down the road.
