Here is Flyers Salary for 2011-2012...
If you trade Kris Versteeg ($3,083,333), and Jody Shelley ($1,100,000) (or send him to AHL), Ian Laperriere to Injury reserve ($1,166,667) and send Michael Leighton to AHL ($1,550,000)
Flyers salary will be
and we will have
11,900,000 caps space
. We have enough cap space to sign all our RFA, Ilya Brygalov and Ville Leino. We will also get to keep Matt Carle for at least one more year. If we really want to win it all next year we will need Matt Carle in Flyers uniform. He is very much underrated. He could be #2 Defense player in 29 out of 30 NHL teams.
Ilya Brygalov - 5,000,000
Ville Leino - $2,500,000
Sean O'Donnell - 1,000,000 (If Flyers wish to resign him) OR Daniel Carcillo - 1,200,000 (If Flyers wish to resign him)
Andreas Nodl - $950,000
Darroll Powe - $850,000
We will still have close to $1,400,000 (give and take) under the Salary Cap for next year
I hope Paul Holmgren see this message before he makes any more moves!
Here's the holes in your post....they can't sign Leino for $2.5 and Matt Carle is not needed to win a cup. He's a nice player when he's on a pairing with Pronger. He was a slower Randy Jones when Pronger was hurt. Carle however has some trade value and probably more value than Versteeg. Get a draft pick for him, since we have none and replace him with a free agent for half his money.
Leino is gone and Versteeg is staying.
