As much as I want to see him on the ice, I sure as heck hope Timonen isn't being rushed back. We'll need him more in April than we do now.

Another update from Timmah:

With 2 players on long-term injury, the Flyers cap is approximately $52.6 million. When Danny Briere comes off LTI - either this weekend or next week - his $6.5 million salary goes back on the cap, bringing the number to $59.1 million.

The Flyers have to lose $2.4 million.

"You can figure it out what we have to do," Holmgren told me.

Okay, the way I see it _ and I said this on Daily News Live tonight _ is that the club has a choice. They could trade Upshall ($2.5 million), once he is healthy, or Joffrey Lupul ($2.3 million) or they could make a series of moves, waiving Lasse Kukkonen ($875,000) and sending a few players back to the Phantoms, which is going to happen, anyway, once Briere comes back.

Holmgren would like to see Briere in the lineup by the weekend, but judging from Briere's comments yesterday, I'm guessing he won't be back until next week.

There is an updated salary cap chart on the Flyers' boards here:

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=517842

Tim P has since changed his figures on his blog to what we have.

Briere's number won't be a hard $6.5M. The number of days he was on LTIR comes off his cap number.

Don't trade Lupul we need him on the Carter line. Don't trade Uppie, he's such an asset to this team concerning physical play and emotion.
