The Flyers continually screw themselves by spending to the cap each year. Cap space is as much of a commodity as a player. Another way to get good players for cheap is when they are cap dumps like Brian Campbell. Brian Burke got Cody Franson for simply taking Matt Lombardi off Nashville's hands. Holmgren himself got Carolina to throw in Alt to take Boosh. Lastly one of the big reasons Toronto won the bernier sweeps last year was because the retained a half a mil in salary, giving LA even more cap flexibility.
We'll see it's probably unlikely that they do either of our ideas anyway seeing how they operate.
