Flyers roster (2014-15)

The Flyers roster is fairly set for next year with no major re-signings needed. Once we look passed that however the majority of our young core come up all at once.
Giroux (RFA)
B. Schenn (RFA)
Couterier (RFA)
Read (UFA)
Plus other players Iím sure the Flyers would like to keep on the roster.
Meszaros (UFA)
McGinn (RFA)

As per cap geek the Flyers are set to have just shy of 21 million in cap space plus the money freed up from Prongerís LTIR.

Can we afford to keep all of them and at what cost?

This thread again?

Anyway, Meszaros is hurt too often. I'm just going to assume he's gone at the end of his contract unless he has a HUGE season next year.

Giroux, BSchenn, and Couturier will be re-signed.

McGinn is so cheap it won't matter.

Where Read is concerned, we might have to buy out Briere or face losing him.

RFAs often get less than UFAs. I think/hope that we'll resign Giroux, Schenn and Couturier. If we can't sign one of them, we can get solids assets by trading their rights. I'd also like to resign Read, but he sure won't be as valuable as he is right now at 900K. It's not a must to get him back if he asks for too much, but I'd like them to at least offer him something decent. McGinn is very promising and wiill be RFA, so we either keep him or get something good for him. Meszaros will probably walk because he's always injured. I like the player, though.

Hartnell (4.75) - Giroux (6.50~) - xxxxxxxxxxxx
Simmonds (3.98) - Couturier (3.00~) - BSchenn (3.00~)
McGinn (1.00~) - Laughton (0.93*) - Voracek (4.25)
Rinaldo (0.80~) - Talbot (1.75) - Sestito (0.80~)
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Coburn (4.50) - Grossmann (3.50)
LSchenn (3.60) - xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Gustafsson (1.30~) - xxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Bryzgalov (5.67)
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

TOTAL: 49.33
CAP: 64.30
SPACE: 14.97

Now your decision is keep Briere at (6.50) or Read at the (3.75-5.00) range that he is going to ask for. I can't see the future so I don't know. Hell, in theory we could keep both, but we would risk not having a real defense.

Also keep in mind that the following season (when Briere's contract actually ends) Bobby Ryan becomes a UFA.

The great thing about the Flyers is that they remain competitive every year, no lengthy playoff droughts. This is done by looking into the future while being cognizant of the present.
Briere has a cap hit of 6.5 million, but only makes 2.0 in the last year, does this make him a buy out possibility to retain the younger players?

Even after the above mentioned players are signed, there are still roster spots to be filled.

Who's off the roster that summer? Timonen? Briere?

Kimmo will be gone but Briere will have another year left at 6.5 mil. he'll only be getting 2 mil i believe so the flyers might be able to move him and then re-sign him the following season with a much lower cap hit. at that point i honestly don't see them buying him out. if they do i think it'll be next season to try and make a push for perry.

one of those forward spots could potentially be filled by Cousins making sestito or rinaldo the 13th forward. perry is also a free agent this year so i expect the flyers will make a push but if that's the case, Briere is most definitely gone.

the defense i really don't know. maybe they'll give mez a contract at around 3 mil since he's made of glass and hopefully the flyers will have a good d-man picked in this draft.


wow...that's a lot of ifs and maybes. i think it's best to see what the roster looks like next year and the type of years the players had before talking about the 14-15 season

edit: oh yeah and we don't even know definitively what the cap will be

All of the following (but not all) could come up.

Laughton, Cousins, Gus, Heeter, possibly Manning, Noebels, Wellwood, and possibly Holmstrom could be up by then, with Ghost on the bubble. First and second rounders from this season and next year could also be on the bubble. I almost wish Wellwood would get traded for an okay pick to a team that needs defense. He doesn't seem to be able to stay up and other forwards coming up fit that 3rd / 4th line role fine.

Money can be had. If Simmonds doesn't round out-- he could be traded to a place with new scenery. Read can be traded, resigned, or allowed to walk. Briere can be amnestied. The Flyers can create space.

The Flyers have a roster overhaul every other year, so predicting two years in advance is futile.

If he's PPG during the play-offs I wouldn't expect it.

what is the deal with the buyouts? why wouldn't you use the buyouts? does that mean the player cannot return to your team? why wouldn't we buyout bryz then just resign him to the minimum contract to save some cap space?

You can't resign players you buyout.

can't re-sign them cause that my friend would be a form of cap circumvention.

I could see Homer finding a way to trade Briere to a team that would buy him out then he'll resign with us for cheaper. Maybe not the easiest or best idea but if anyone would think about doing it its Homer.

ya, I'm sure any team would do that for us. Just as long as we trade our 1st round draft pick for the next 3 years along with Briere

I think if we have a good shot at Corey perry there's a chance he'd be bought out. I think we're seeing just how crucial it is for Giroux to have a winger that can take the focus away from him and create space for him to make plays. It just so happens that one of the best players in the league at that job is going to be a free agent this summer... We'd be idiotic to not make a run at him.

Cousins will likely make it, unless trade-baited and packaged for something. I also think Noebels will be a 3rd/4th liner. Otherwise, plug in all our current players under 34 and leave a spot or two for blockbusters
