they cant put Pronger on LTIR until the preseason ends.

As of now its the cap +10%...after the preseason it drops to the cap....so they have to make moves to get under the cap...part of that is to put Pronger on the LTIR

Philadelphia wont officially sign Cleary until after the preseason...basically his salary will take up space given when Pronger goes on LTIR.

The issue with PHL roster is that they have 10 Dmen on their Roster. I think all on NHL contracts. Pronger on the LTIR gives them 9...so the feeling is they will try to trade one of their Dmen or try to send one down to AHL.

At forward cap geek has them having 13 signed. Laughton is listed on cap geek but he likely isnt on the team this year. They have 2 unsigned UFAs.

If PHL does it right where they are right near the cap without Pronger and then by putting him on LTIR gives them extra cap space.
