It would also leave them with just $4 million of cap room for a No. 1 goalie, and that won't be enough to land them Ilya Bryzgalov or Tomas Vokoun, the top unrestricted free-agent netminders on the market.
But maybe the Flyers are not limiting themselves to free agency.
There are whispers that they may make a pitch for Buffalo's Ryan Miller, the Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist, Calgary's Miikka Kiprusoff, Minnesota's Niklas Backstrom or, yes, New Jersey's Martin Brodeur.
