not really, the flyers have 8 defensemen signed and 22 players total with 7.8 million cap left. obviously weber would take 7.1 of that, but then again prongers 4.9 million comes off the books once the season starts because of long term injury.
Well, depends. Does the 13M bonus count against the cap?
the main board is claiming 7.875M cap hit which would get this under the cap for the flyers, still the's have little to no room.

Reason: add mainboard cap hit
Anyone else get the impression that there are a whole lot of logical fallacies out in the media regarding the owners? Everyone is saying the actions of two owners somehow prove...well what exactly? That there is a problem?
I'd say it is very possible that the majority of owners in the league watched in horror as the Preds, who were on the verge of being an upper mid tier franchise, literally got pillaged.
Whats the NHLs sales pitch now? Come invest in the NHL and proudly invest in ten teams farm teams.
It is 2 teams this offseason, but if you add every year since the lockout it goes up drastically. Detroit, vancouver, islanders, devils, wild, philly, chicago. And that only counts the teams, not the amount of players signed to cap circumventing contracts. Detroit has 2, chicago has 1, islanders have 1, devils have 1, wild have 2, philly has 2 (but have signed another 2), vancouver has 1.
Those are only the ones i can think of off the top of my head.
Well someone on the Nashville Boards has attempted to start an email campaign by posting the orgs email addresses. The point of the email is to threaten to cancel your season tickets if the org doesn't match. Would be interesting if it catches on, it would be akin to writing your congressman.
damnit “@icemancometh: Ducks sign Daniel Winnik to two-year deal worth $3.6 million. $1.8M for each.”
just saw this on the main board.
i think he may have been signed later this summer if available depending on what DW did to fill roster spots. this is a good deal for him, i would not have pd this much for him, id rather have Burnish at this point for the same $$
