Flyers Hands Are Tied

from the Delaware County Times,
It’s not a position the Flyers are used to finding themselves in, but with the new salary-cap structure in the NHL, it’s one they better get used to. Despite missing seven regulars from their 23-man roster due to various injuries, the Flyers did not call up any reinforcements from the Phantoms because each day’s pay at the NHL level for those players counts against the salary cap. In short, their hands are tied. Advertisement That’s because their team salary sits at $37.75 million. That leaves them about $1.25 million to play with for the whole season. So when players like Sami Kapanen, Turner Stevenson, and now Keith Primeau are out of action for an extended period of time, finding replacements isn’t as easy as it uses to be.
