What about the asinine rule that requires a player who suffered a career-ending injury to continue to pretend that his return is imminent, or at least achievable?

The Flyers have the most misunderstood cap situation in the league. It is borderline bizarre.
What was the previous projection? I'm gonna say no more than 70 million. If that's the case, no they wouldn't have been fine. They maybe could have added Streit, but not Lecavalier with Briere and Bryz taking up like 12 million in cap space.

And yes I agree completely, the injury rule is assine but it's only helping the Flyers. We all know Pronger signed a 35+ contract that they would be stuck with right now if he was officially retired.
