We could easily offer both Suter and Parise the exact same deals that Pittsburgh will offer them, plus I'd imagine Meszaros would be on his way out if we obtained Suter, and you have another 8 million coming off the books after this season with Timonen, Lilja, and Shelley's contracts expiring, which opens up a good 12 million to resign Hartnell and Simmonds. It's not until 2014 that we'll need to worry (Need to resign Schenn, Couturier, Read and Giroux that year).

The Flyer's are in a very good cap situation right now, which has to make you wonder, whose the next shelley/lilja getting a bad contract.
Lilja makes very close to the league minimum. Not sure how that is a negative for cap management.
