What does the 2011/12 Flyers roster + cap situation look like now?

With the Carter, Richards, and Bryzgalov deals done, what do Philadelphia's roster and salary commitments look like? With the cap increasing and salary cleared, how much space do they have to work with?

Where do Schenn, Simmonds and Voracek fit into a hypothetical roster, and what are the holes likely still to be filled via FA acquisitions or trade?

Is it likely that Zherdev or Leino will be brought back? Or O'Donnell?

A lot of people are running around as if the sky was falling right now, but I think this shake-up could result in a huge step forward for Philadelphia, depending on what they can do with all the room they've created.

EDIT - Maybe I should have posted in the "Your Roster Next Season" thread, but those seem to mostly be fantasy rosters. I'm more curious about what's actually on the books, where the gaps may be, and where the current pieces likely fit.

7.5 million roughly with bryz signed... but we still need to sign Voracek and Simmonds who are both RFA

There's lots of cap space now. Even with Leino at 3.5, Simmonds at 1.25 and Voracek at 1.75, all of which are big raises. There's still about 7m to spend if you dump Leighton, Lappy and Shelley's contracts.

Brad Richards anyone?

By quick and dirty math my Flyers have about $15m in cap space to sign:
Leino
Voracek
Simmonds
Powe
Carcillo (Maybe)
Nodl (Maybe)
Zherdev (Maybe)
and a 6th defenseman/Sean O'Donnel(maybe)

So... it seems they can add another 6 or so million in salary into a lineup that currently looks like this:

(Leino) - Briere - Hartnell
JvR - Giroux - (Voracek)
Versteeg - Schenn - (Simmonds)
(Nodl) - Betts - Powe
(Carcillo)

Pronger - Carle
Timonen - Coburn
Meszaros - (O'Donnel)

Bryzgalov
Bobrovsky

This is what we have right now (I think) with our rfa's, except for Carcillo, inserted. I have no idea what they will sign for though... If they go for this, and you add a guy similar to what O'Donnell made this year you will have about 3M to splash out on 3rd line center (if there's anyone out there) or a solid winger.

I'm really hoping we don't bring Leino back.
