Flyers Waive 3

TSN reported that the Philadelphia Flyers placed forwards Petr Nedved and Niko Dimitrakos and defenceman Nolan Baumgartner on waivers.

Matt's Take: Dimitrakos and Baumgartner are not surprising, but Nedved has always been a player I like. I know his salary is little hefty, so it is most likely a cost cutting move. If the Bruins could pluck him on re-entry waivers I would like that. This, overall, is likely a cap relief move, and could spell a deal for a goaltender.

Nedved is too old and his salary is way to big. If the Bruins signed him it would be a BIG mistake. If he couldn't stick if out in Philly where they are doing almost as bad as us then he would never make it here.

Thanks Luc, I wasn't sure if they got rid of that or not.

Philly would only get cap relief if the player sent down to the AHL has a two way contract. Otherwise, I think it counts in full towards their team salary.
