The Flyers did not give restricted free agent Radovan Somik a qualifying contract offer yesterday. That saves them $538,650 against the cap. Reconfiguring Carter and Richards' entry-level salaries plus six qualifying offers, the Flyers' payroll is at $31,917,650 for next season, with $7,082,350 in cap space. It could be a tight squeeze to sign Scott Niedermayer, but Somik's salary helps...

Brashear > Niedermayer?

Ouch, IMO not much space left..

How much was Clarke aiming for ?
36-38 at the start of the season ?

Loose pucks. Jeff Carter and Mike Richards, the Flyers' 2003 first-round picks, have to be under contract by tomorrow. Rick Curran, who represents Carter, and Pat Morris, who represents Richards, said yesterday the deals were nearly done.

According to chuck Gormley, the 2 boys have agreed in principle for a contract (courrier post online).
I guess the official info will be release later in the day or tomorow.

Some interesting info about the cap and the post-season...


Quote:
During the off-season, teams are allowed to have a payroll up to 110 per cent of the cap, a maximum of $42.9 million.

http://www.thestar.com/NASApp/cs/Co...93064&t=TS_Home

To prevent teams loading up for bear going into the playoffs.

If the team leaves itself roughly 1.3 mil in cap space by the trade deadline we can get a 5.2 milion dollar player and stay under both the 39 mil regular season cap and the 43 mil off season cap.

Leaving 3 mil is generous, so I think this means Clarke is aiming for more than just a deadline trade. Actually pretty smart, since there are certain to be injuries and holes that need to be plugged.

BTW, I think not qualifying Somik was a bad idea. He is not a bad player at all, obviously not a great player, but reliable enough that he could have made it to the fourth line of almost any team in the league. He could have been signed for the league minimum, and at that salary would have been easy to unload in a trade. With no waiver draft, we just gave up an asset for nothing, even if he was only worth say, a 6th round pick.

Somik brings nothing to the table, I don't understand the feeling around here that he's got value. He is the hockey definition of the baseball term "replacement player"--you could call up a nothing special minor leaguer and not lose anything. Heck, since it's Somik, you might gain something, as all he does is play sound positional defense, nothing more. For 11 minutes a night, a guy who brings a good physical game probably carries more value. Not to mention that at 28 Somik isn't getting any better, whereas a 23, 24 year old getting the same ice time might improve.

I have been saying this since he entered the league. Some "know it all fans" seamed to say he was a great 3rd liner. Looks like the Flyers agreed with me and the others who knew this guy brought nothing special!!!

And to think that the Flyers drafted Somik one pick ahead of Handzus. What a waste.
