  • sign Erik Gustafsson to a $1MM contract

That would leave $1.9MM to sign Simon Gagne to a contract, that can be signed anytime between today and final day of trainings camp. The Flyers would be cap compliant with Chris Pronger on the roster, could place him on long-term injured reserve and would get almost Prongers whole caphit as injury allowance back (-$25.644, difference between Gagnes caphit and the aforementioned capspace).

The following day:
  • recall Brayden Schenn
  • hope Rosehill isn't claimed
That should be the roster the Flyers could ice:
You probably have to add Wellwood to the roster too and carry his contract... That leaves you with only $1,331,644. And again you're hoping that no one acquires Rosehill, which isn't an ideal way to run a team. But if Gagne can be signed for that cap I'd do it. It's not like Rosehill make or breaks the team...
