Not an advanced stats guy, so this may be an absurd idea, but I thought I would give it a shot to run the Flyers for this offseason. Would love to hear all your feedback and hopefully we can start some discussions! Thanks, enjoy!

Kimmo Timonen ($6.000m) / Erik Gustafsson ($1.000m)

Coburn and Petr Straka for rights to Jonathan Bernier
Bryz, we don’t pay you all that money to DUCK from the puck. While you played well this season we can not build a team with your awful contract
Briere your cap hit is awful considering your production of late, we need the money to build a team.
Rusty you wanted too much playing time and you are not that good
Mike Knuble....do I really need to say anything
Jody Shelly, Matt Walker thank god you two are off the books!
Gags says he wants to stay in Philly and will take a hometown discount
Gus time to start on the big club
the Big O stashed in the minors for the time being
Kent Huskins, a calming influence on the blue line since becoming a Flyer
Adam Hall fantastic PK guy will give G and Coots some rest on the PK
UFA Viktor Stalberg has had a respectable career with the Hawks so far will add some depth up front for us after trading away some pieces
UFA Tyler Bozak very durable player, pretty decent production with the leafs, perhaps a change of scenery will turn his production up, again gives us some depth
Trade OEL!!!! Yeah we gave a TON away for this guy but he is worth it, young guy already up in the elite category of defensemen
Trade Jonathan Bernier, I believe he is living in the shadow of Quick, not elite yet but better than bryz and still early in his career, could become an elite guy, also provides healthy competition for Mason at a cap friendly price!
Down on the Farm:
Nick Cousins could see some time with the big club to see what he can do
Whoever we take with 11th overall (a Forward preferably thats why i traded Laughton)
The Big O, looked good in the last segment of last season, would like to see him put on some weight and work on his speed and fundamentals, but I feel very good about him as an option for us at D for the future.
Cap Space, what is that?
Yeah we have about 3 mil in cap space, gives us room to make a move at the deadline if need be (looking at you kimmo) if not when Kimmo comes off the books plus whoever else comes off the books after next season to sign G Coots and Schenner
