This isn't the NFL where you can just "let a player go." Those contracts count no matter where they are. Even if the Flyers were to loan a player out, they would still count towards the contract limit.
The only way to get rid of those contracts is to trade them, or to waive them. And the only players that would be claimed off waivers would likely be players the Flyers shouldn't be waiving in the first place. Team's aren't going to take our trash for no reason. Added to that, waivers doesn't go into effect until 12 days before the start of the regular season. So until that time the Flyers could not bring any additional free agents in without trading away a contract first.
