It’s like the pre-cap days there in Philly.

To be fair, from what I can find, the Flyers only ever spend more than this year’s salary cap twice before the cap era started, so the amount they can spend pretty much is the same as pre-cap days…

True, and at least they’re spending it on a draftee they picked.  If it were a FA signing, it would probably be a whole ‘nother story.

Huh?  The Flyers are going to have to cut somebody…or is the Pronger contract going to come off the books?

It’s an extension to his contract and doesn’t begin until the 2014-2015. Pronger’s contract will always come off once the season starts because he’ll be on LTIR until the end of it.
