My Custom Lineup
Scott Hartnell ($4.750m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jakub Voracek ($4.250m)
Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Wayne Simmonds ($3.975m)
Simon Gagne ($2.500m) / Scott Laughton ($1.138m) / Matt Read ($0.900m)
Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Adam Hall ($0.800m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.750m)
Jay Rosehill ($0.675m) /
Kimmo Timonen ($6.000m) / Luke Schenn ($3.600m)
Braydon Coburn ($4.500m) / Erik Gustafsson ($1.250m)
Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m) / Chris Pronger ($4.936m)
Bruno Gervais ($0.825m) /
Marc-Andre Bourdon ($0.613m) /
Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.667m)
Steve Mason ($1.500m)
Buyout: Oskars Bartulis ($0.100m)
Buyout: Danny Briere ($0.000m)
Buyout: Andrej Meszaros ($0.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,212,381; BONUSES: $3,012,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $5,100,119

That would leave us 5 million in cap space without LTIR Pronger and Bourdon. With those two on LTIR that would leave us about 10.5 million. Leave Timonen paired with Schenn, Grossmann with Gus, and then make a move to get someone to play with coburn. That could be a draft pick or a FA like Streit or Hainsey. We could also try to package Read and a pick to get a younger puck moving defenseman. Replace Read with McGinn.

I reall think we only have that one dman position that "has" to be filled this offseason. I like the forward group and I think we continue with both Bryz and Mason next season
i like this idea as well.

my primary goals, if i were the flyers would be:
1, Draft a defenseman or a winger with a good shot.
2, Acquire another young PMD defenseman (Rundblad?)
3, Acquire either a young winger prospect with a good shot or another young defenseman depending on who we draft/ or another 1st to draft one of the two.

i think we need 2 young defenseman for the future and 1 potential top 6 winger. i would be thrilled if they turned out to be Rundblad/Gormley, Nurse and Mantha. Rundblad or Gormley could step into our d-core next season, and i honestly believe than Mantha could contribute at the NHL level as early as next year as well. Nurse would probably be ready either the following season or the season after, which is fine because this team is still a few seasons away from being a legitimate contender IMO.
