Bottom line though is while the cash output may be greater with no AHL reduction, the Cap hit is still favorable for the Flyers by a little amount... Still a good sign (no pun intended) IMO.
All Entry Level Contracts are two way contracts.

One thing to keep in mind about Capgeek this time of year. Capgeek does not keep the Off Season Cap totals. They are giving you a guestimate of what the roster could look like for next Season and it's resulting Cap situation. Leighton, come July 1, is indeed on the Flyers Cap. Recalling him for the post season has nothing to do with it. All players signed to One way deals count against the Cap in the Off Season. And all players signed to two way deals are on the Cap in proportion to the number of days they spent on an NHL roster the prior Season. As two examples of that are the Flyers have to carry $142,257 of Cap space during the Summer for the time that Wellwood, Holmstrom, Gustafsson, and Syvret spent on the FLyers roster last Season. And they have to carry 962,258 of Cap space for Braydon Schenn based on the number of days he spent on LA's NHL roster.
