I agree with the LTIR with Pronger, but doesn't his salary count against the cap during the open of free agency and don't teams have to be cap compliant by the start of the season?
I am not too sure about the above two questions that's why I lean towards Pronger. I interpreted the topic question as there are no CBA backlashes and the Flyers could buyout one player w/o penalty. Again, I still go with Pronger, the ship has sailed and it's time to move on.
Bryzgalov had a 33-16-7 record on a new
If he doesn't play again, his contract is moved to the LTIR. Contracts on the LTIR do not count against the cap. The Flyers still pay his contract on the LTIR but lets be realistic money doesn't particularly stop the Flyers. It would be a waste in terms of CBA and cap space if they bought him out.
Not sure why our best playoff performer in the past 3-4 years is on the list... (Briere)
Bryzgalov is the logical choice if he bombs again this season.
It does count against the cap during the off-season, so it could impact their ability to sign free agents. I'm pretty sure there is a limit to the $'s you can stash on LTIR also, so it could be a problem if there are more injuries.
