How much salary is needed to get Briere back on the roster isn't it like 2 million.

This comment is in Chuck Gormley's column from today:

One of the Flyers' biggest obstacles involving any trade is their salary cap situation. With Daniel Briere scheduled to return Wednesday night against the Kings, the Flyers need to clear about $2.5 million in cap space to make room for Briere's $6.5 million cap hit.

The most likely scenarios include forward Darroll Powe being demoted to the Phantoms and center Glen Metropolit and defenseman Ossi Vaananen (or both) being placed on waivers or being bought out.

If Ossi gets waived i will be mad as hell. Id rather him be in the lineup than Randy Jones. It pissed me off how much slack Jones gets cut.

agreed. i'd rather waive jones than vaananen. he's cheaper and plays a more solid defensive game. plus, if we move jones, then all we need to do is send powe down and boom, instant room for briere.

That shows how knowledgeable our beat-writers are and how credible their numbers are. An NHL team isn't allowed to buy out players during the season, there is only a buy-out period shortly before free agency and another one after arbitration.

Oh, by the way, Holmgren would have to be ****ing braindead to get rid of Vaananen. If he doesn't look at the ECF last year and realize we need solid defensive depth, then **** him, get him out of here. Unless we're planning on going into the playoffs with Nate ****ing Guenin as the 7th defenseman...

at least boyd ****ing kane isn't out 13th forward anymore. small blessings.

i'm thinking holmgren is looking to move someone for a pick so he can cut cap space. i was thinking ottawa might be interested in jones, but after shelling out a pick for comrie/campoli, i dunno if they'd still have any interest.

Of course this is different being the Salary Cap era, but what happened with injuries in 2004, though beyond belief, Eric Weinrich could be used as a model.

The Jones-Alberts paring makes me tremble. I hope John Stevens wakes the **** up. I do not want to see them together in the playoffs.

Yup, it's not even close. I'm utterly shocked that Vaananen has become our 7th d-man.

He won't wake up. The man's a walking doorknob. It's just one decision after another that makes no sense to anybody.

It appears that Ossi lost his spot because of one bad game. So why do Jones and Alberts get free passes after 25 bad games?

Jones should have been traded last season, he has been horrible since the beginning!
