It all equals the same answer, just with different numbers. I took the total salary coming off the books, and then estimated the total that would be going back on. Your taking the players we won't resign, and then estimating the raises the of the players we will.


Giroux 7.5-8
Read 3-3.5
Schenn 3.5
Couts 2


Giroux 3.75-4.25
Read 2.1-2.6
Schenn .4
Couts .625

Either way, is the same thing.

Yeah, its possible Mason gets a big raise if he performs well. But if that happens, then there is really no way Bryz would still be on this team after. He either gets bought out this year or next. That's another 5.6 off the books.

He could get more than that. Though I think if he does resign here, Homer would get the deal done before during the season. If that happens, his contract would likely be based more off what he'd done in past seasons versus what he was doing that season.

I'd have to do more precise math, but the Flyers should still be able to fit Read in at 4.5. If not, you can always deal someone like Talbot to make space. Really, it depends on what the cap will be after next season. Or they can let him walk. I like Read, but him at anything more than 4.5 is really an over-payment.
