I don't think the salary cap is going to be that much of a worry then. The cap will go up from next years value especially with the cash grab outdoor game bonanza. Giroux is going to get a bunch but I doubt Couturier or B.Schenn will. Read will be a goner. Whoever they draft this year in the 1st will probably be on the team plus maybe Gostibehere (if he is as good as he projects to be the Flyers will rush him). Also Bryz will probably be bought out next summer, even though some of his buyout will have to be invested into the goaltending position.
