With all the wishy-washy nature of current cap speculation, this isn't going to be as well-projected as I would've liked, but it seems our roster for next year is starting to take shape...

It's pretty evident that Downie is gone and that Raffl will be here. The big factors here are new contracts for Schenn, Timonen, and MacDonald. Gustafsson is also currently without contract.

Hartnell (4.75) - Giroux (8.23) - Voracek (4.25)
Lecavalier (4.50) - Schenn (3.25) - Simmonds (3.98)
Raffl (1.10) - Couturier (1.75) - Read (3.63)
Rinaldo (0.75) - xxxxxxxxxx (0.80) - xxxxxxxxxx (0.80)
Rosehill (0.68)

Timonen (5.50) - Coburn (4.50)
Streit (5.25) - Grossmann (3.50)
MacDonald (4.75) - Schenn (3.60)
Gustafsson (1.00)

Mason (4.10)
xxxxxxxxxx (1.50)

TOTAL: 71.87

It seems we can't have our cake and eat it too. Some tough decisions are coming this offseason.

We could possibly save money by dropping Grossmann for someone cheaper. Maybe Timonen decides to retire as well. Perhaps Schenn comes a little cheaper. Even so, we might be pushing it.

It's funny that everyone has always been so gloom and doom about the Flyers and their salary cap. I've always been calm (as has most of the Flyers' board) since there's always a way out. This is the first year that I don't see a way out if Timonen decides to give it one more year.
