Couturier resigns for 2.25mm
Read resigns for 4mm

That leaves (Cousins Noebels Heeter are examples of cheaper salaries):

Briere 6.500
Voracek 4.250
Hartnell 4.750
Giroux 8.250
Schenn 3.000
Talbot 1.750
Simmonds 3.975
Couturier 2.250
Read 4.000
Rinaldo 0.750
Laughton 1.138
Noebels 0.749
Cousins 0.925

Forwards 42.287

Coburn 4.500
Schenn 3.600
Grossmann 3.500
Gustafsson 0.900
5/6 1.000
5/6 1.000
6/7 0.750

Defense 15.250

Bryzgalov 5.667
Heeter 0.850
Goalies 6.517

Total 64.053

Current Cap 64.300

+5% 67.515

That leaves the Flyers with a hopeless D. I don't see how they don't trade Briere or Buyout Bryz if they want to keep Read and not have one of the worst D groups in the league.
Briere gets traded or amnestied by the next off season at the latest. End of story.
