Flyers Notes: Team creates room for deal

Sam Carchidi

The Flyers aren’t just clearing cap space for the fun of it. They’re trying to set up a deal that would give the offense more life.

The Flyers yesterday freed more than $2 million of cap room by putting goalie Ray Emery ($1.5 million salary) on the long-term injured reserve list – he could still return this season – and placing seldom-used winger Riley Cote ($550,000 salary) on waivers.

The Flyers now have about $2.8 million of cap space – and that figure could grow, of course, if a player on their current roster is in a deal. A team’s roster cannot surpass $56.8 million.

The NHL’s roster freeze lifted at midnight eastern time, freeing general managers to close on any trade discussions that took place during the Olympic break.

Based on the level of those discussions, there’s a good chance we’ll see some movement in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Here’s what we know.

As is the case most years, veteran defencemen are a hot commodity.

The sellers

• Carolina Hurricanes: Carolina has already begun shedding players, sending forward Matt Cullen to Ottawa before the Olympics. They have a proven scorer on the market in winger Ray Whitney. They also have what the Sabres may need.
