Be honest - how big is the Flyers' window to get a Cup with this young core, really? No one wants to face the reality that the cap might not go up and all three of Giroux, Schenn and Couturier will need a contract extension in two seasons. Giroux's new contract will be ridiculous. The chances that one or maybe even 2 of these 3 will be gone is very, very high.
There's no reason the cap shouldn't go up with the TV deal in effect. Also, we'll have Timonen and Hartnell's contracts up before any of theirs run out (though I hope Hartnell stays for around the same total.) The bad news is Voracek, and Simmonds' contracts also run out before theirs.

But I'd be shocked if the cap doesn't go up.
