Paul Holmgren's Holiday Wish List
As the holiday season approaches, Paul Holmgren has a number of issues that the team has to address. There are a couple of big ticket items on his shopping list that the organization needs to address. Never one to allow money to burn a hole in his pocket, Paul Holmgren was no doubt elated with the news that the salary cap will rise to around 71 million for 2013-14.
For possibly the first time in the salary cap era, the Flyers will not be significantly confined by the salary cap. Right now, they have around $54.3 million committed to five defensemen and nine forwards. That number includes Chris Pronger’s $4.94M cap hit, so when that comes off the books they will have around $21.5 million in cap dollars to play with. The following players are without contracts next season:
RFAs: Brayden Schenn, Michael Raffl, Erik Gustafsson, Steve Mason
UFAs: Steve Downie, Adam Hall, Kimmo Timonen, Andrej Meszaros, Hal Gill, Ray Emery
With those in mind, and considering the other needs of the team, here is what Paul Holmgren’s wish list should look like
