My final attempt before the cap and contract for Bryz (or not) is settled:


James Van Riemsdyk ($1.654m) / Mike Richards ($5.750m) / Kris Versteeg ($3.083m)
Daniel Briere ($6.500m) / Jeff Carter ($5.272m) / Cody McCormick ($0.700m)
Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Eric Wellwood ($0.580m)
Darroll Powe ($0.825m) / Blair Betts ($0.700m) / Ben Holmstrom ($0.750m)
Andreas Nodl ($0.825m)

Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m) / Braydon Coburn ($3.200m)
Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m) / Chris Pronger ($4.921m)
Erik Gustafsson ($0.900m) / Brent Sopel ($1.400m)
Oskars Bartulis ($0.600m)

Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.250m) / Sergei Bobrovsky ($1.750m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $63,500,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,944,988; BONUSES: $1,825,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $555,012

if you want to trade Bobrovsky (depending a bit on the lenght of Bryzgalov's contract) and have a cheaper back up you could spend some more on a solid winger perhaps. Also, one might want to flip van Riemsdyk and Hartnell to keep Giroux and JvR together. I kind of like JvR together with Richie and Versteeg however.
Why are the Flyers going to to sign Cody McCormick? He's a 4th line player for Buffalo, and were going to sign him to play with Briere and Carter? And Nodl is going to be the extra forward? This is what I love about the off season, names are just picked out of a hat.
