Marcus Foligno ($0.900m) / Eric Staal ($8.250m) / Chris Stewart ($3.000m)

Eric Wellwood ($0.580m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.544m) / Chuck Kobasew ($1.250m)
Ruslan Fedotenko ($1.750m)
Braydon Coburn ($4.500m) / Erik Karlsson ($6.500m)
Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m) / Andrej Sekera ($2.750m)
Jordan Leopold ($3.000m) / Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m)
Marc-Andre Bourdon ($0.613m)
Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.667m)
Michael Leighton ($0.900m)
The Flyers are lead by an elite 1-2-3 center punch down the middle of Claude Giroux, Eric Staal, and Sean Couturier. We don't have a big name like Vanek on the wings but we have 6 wingers who are all capable of playing in top-6 roles and are great fits for their centers.
The defense is lead by reigning Norris winner Erik Karlsson, but it also has tons of depth and defensive skill with Coburn, Sekera, and Timonen all being serviceable top-pairing options.
Bryzgalov may be "enigmatic" but there is no denying that he is talented as hell and is absolutely capable of stealing games.
With equal depth as the Sabres, it all comes down to the elite parts, and Giroux, Karlsson, and Staal put the Flyers over the top.
