Flyers Make Major Shakeups Before The Draft

Earlier today the Philiadelphia Flyers turned their salary cap standings and team roster upside down by shuffling some of their bigger names off to other teams and bringing in a bonafide goaltender with a huge price tag.

First the Flyers sent scoring winger Jeff Carter to Columbus in exchange for Jakub Voracek, a first round pick, and a third round pick. Carter was recently signed to a huge multi year contract that will last until the 2021-2022 season

Later in the day the Flyers sent their captain, Mike Richards, to LA for forward Wayne Simmonds and young star Braydon Schenn.  Richards is set to be in LA until the end of the 2019-2020.

Finally, with their newly freed cap space GM Paul Holmgren signed superstar goaltender Ilya Brygalov to a huge 9 year 51 million dollar deal (too high a price tag for Ilya in my opinion).
