After checking for myself (traded everyone off the roster except Brayden Schenn), this is correct.

So I revert back to my original position. There's about $4 M in excess space for a depth winger or a goalie (post-Meszaros). Getting both in free agency will be a very tight squeeze. I am sure the Flyers would like to push Thomas down from $4 M, but goalie has to be the priority. They can wait to get a bottom-6 forward until the deadline if necessary, since they will have a lot more cap breathing room in-season.
