Pronger said the plan was always that he would only play the one game. It was all a joke about not going to NJ.

Couturier likely locks spot in Flyers' loss

According to one club source, Courturier did nothing to “play himself off the roster.”

Which means Couturier makes it.

The Flyers need to lose salary cap dollars to keep both Brayden Schenn and Couturier.

Yet with Schenn having a suspected shoulder injury, perhaps he starts the season with the Phantoms. Matt Read, sources said last week, is on the roster.

Schenn’s cap hit is $3.11 million. He was the centerpiece of the Mike Richards trade, although Wayne Simmonds, also acquired in that deal, has been more impressive.

Moving Schenn to the Phantoms now would allow keeping Couturier, Read, Zac Rinaldo and even Matt Walker with $210,000 to spare.

Why was Nylander let go without being given a fair shot?

Flyers Close Out Preseason with 2-1 loss; Roster Decisions Ahead

http://nhlhotstove.com/flyers-close-...e+Hot+Stove%29

Quote:
With several roster spots hanging in the balance, the Flyers dropped a 2-1 decision to the Devils last night at Prudential Center in New Jersey. In finishing the preseason schedule with a 4-2-1 mark, questions still remain as to a couple of spots at forward, as well as who will be the team’s seventh defenseman.

Roster Definites – for the Moment

The roster will be cut to 23 players in the next couple of days – two goaltenders, 12 / 13 forwards, 7 / 8 defensemen. Here are the 21 players who, for the time being, would seem to have a roster spot locked up:

F – Scott Hartnell, Danny Briere, Jakub Voracek, James van Riemsdyk, Claude Giroux, Jaromir Jagr, Max Talbot, Matt Read, Wayne Simmonds, Jody Shelley (suspended), Blair Betts, Zac Rinaldo, Andreas Nodl (13)

D – Chris Pronger, Matt Carle, Kimmo Timonen, Braydon Coburn, Andrej Meszaros, Andreas Lilja (6)

G - Ilya Bryzgalov-Sergei Bobrovsky (2)

With 22 rostered players (including defenseman Oskars Bartulis and Ian Laperriere), Philadelphia has just over $175,000 in cap space.

It has already been well-established that Read has a forward spot locked up. The 25-year-old, who was signed as a free agent by Paul Holmgren this past spring, assisted on Hartnell’s power play tally in the first period last night. With two goals and seven points, Read tied Giroux for the club lead in points during exhibition play.

Exactly. When you come to a camp on try out after a year out of the game, and you pull your groin and can't play in the scrimmages or preseason games, you get cut. The play of the kids made it clear there was no room. Nylander was only an insurance policy against both Schenn and Couturier needing to be sent down. Neither might... And with Reid playing so well too, there is no need for Nyls.
