There is no benefit at the deadline since regardless of how you do the math, there is no possible way we can bring in a higher priced player for $65,000 a year. Based on todays salaries, for game 1 we will bank 1/82 of $65,000 = $792. Why not go over the limit by 1.1 million and keep guys rather than trying to stay under the cap by so little? Now if Walker was sent down/Shelley waiver etc to get us significantly under the cap, then the banked dollars becomes very beneficial.
Exactly. If the Flyers were to place Lappy on LTIR thier Upper Limit would essentially be 65.4, minus the 65K.

Placing Lappy on LTIR would increase the team's ability to add a player at the deadline. And with no bonus cushion in play this year, there is no worry about bonus overage penalties onto next year's Cap.
