I think you'll see the Flyers move bit players like Savage, Seidenberg, etc....before they put Umberger back to the minors.
I honestly don't think you'll see Primeau back until the playoffs. By then, players salaries are all paid up and we won't be in any cap trouble. I suppose you can say that that's the way to work around the salary cap if you're in trouble. Deactivate a player or send them to the minors, call them towards the end of the season or reactivate them towards the end (cap hit will be minimal) and then enjoy a great playoff run.
I'm sure that there's probably some kind of mechanism in place in the CBA to prevent that, but if not, it wouldn't surprise me to see teams start taking advantage of that.
