The first year out of the salary cap the Flyers were sending down like 5 guys between games or something if I recall correctly. I forget how they altered the rules, but you can't work the system nearly as much as you could right out of the gate.

The Flyers have obviously been a unique situation since the teams are in the same city and they share practice facilities.

Too bad that is ending soon. I wish they would have kept the spectrum and did PhillyLive in all those abandoned warehouses and **** around the area.

If the one plan works out in Bellmawr, then it would still be totally do able to be able to call guys up and down with no problem.

Does anyone know why they didn't send Giroux down to the AHL for the weekend to participate in the AHL all-star events? It's not like it would have meant missing Flyers games.

The Flyers practiced in the Miami area today. If he stayed for the AHL all-star game, he would have missed the Flyers' practice.
