Lets look at their contracts.......

under contract for 2014:

11 forwards
4 dmen
0 goalies

cap space about $7M + Pronger LTIR (<$4.9M) + $3M if cap goes up

They need to sign Schenn + 2 forwards + 3 Dmen + 2 goalies......

have fun trying to do that. Say you have $14M to spend

Schenn say $4M
2 cheap forwards $1M each
2 cheap Dmen $1M each
1 more expensive Dman $4M

you still have to sign 2 goalies.....
You must know something no one else does...

Say schenn takes a deal like Kadri which makes more sense given that he hasn't broken out yet like Kadri has and that puts him at $2.9.

As far as the forwards goes, they flyers now have some depth locked up and they don't need to sign Schenn plus 2 forwards. They need to sign Schenn and bring up a forward from the phantoms who is waiting to crack the roster.

Flyers will have options on D and goal because they will have cap space.

It's hysterical how other teams fans try to make a huge deal out of the flyers cap situation when they always find a way to get the job done and with ease. Seriously, who thought with Briere and Bryz being bought out they flyers would end up with Lecavalier, Streit and Emery. Paul Holmgren and Co. Are better and more experienced at cap management than you(not just talking about Djp)
