If they can get Doan for 4.5m, then in 2 years, when Mez and Bruno fall off the books (hopefully replaced by a strong performance from Manning/Gus/MAB/etc) that is 4.8 million back in the fold.

Moves could be made, contracts expire, that could warrant well-planning GM to give Doan more than 2 years. Briere's contract is gone in 3. Kimmo's 6.3 gone after this year.

As of right now, the big year for Roo/Cooter/Schenn, the Flyers have 35 million in cap space.
Yeah, I realize that but I just don't think the Doan is going to be any less than 6 mil/yr at this point. Should be interesting since we have to re-sign Giroux, Schenn, Coots, Simmonds, Read, Hartnell, Read, and maybe Mez depending on how well he does. Also have to take into consideration the new CBA coming up and hoping that the salary cap doesn't drop too much.
