On Thursday, June 13th, The Fourth Period reported that the Flyers have decided to buyout goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov and right winger Daniel Briere. This move can put a heavy influence on what comes in the future for the Philadelphia Flyers, such as the rumored Matt Read for Jonathan Bernier deal. Even though this move can be easily treated with trades and signings, this trade also gives the Flyers 12.166mil in salary cap space which is huge for this upcoming offseason.
TFP also reported that Flyers’ GM Paul Homlgren is seeking for a top 6 forward to replace Danny Briere. I feel that a good replacement for this is signing UFA Viktor Stalberg who brings speed and skill, he would go great with Claude Giroux or Jakub Voracek.
The move although not official yet, is heavily rumored around. TFP reports that the Flyers will most likely make the move after the Stanley Cup Finals.
