Carcillo files for salary arbitration

With the Flyers less than a million dollars away from the salary cap and still needing to sign another forward or two, they are going to have to get creative as they fill out the remainder of their roster. With the team still intending to sign restricted free agents Darroll Powe and Daniel Carcillo, the Flyers are going to have to move some salary off the books to make room.

Carcillo, who made $937,500 last year, has filed for salary arbitration. After having one of the more productive offensive seasons of his career, you can bet Carcillo will be looking for a bit of a raise. Seeing as the Flyers gave Jody Shelley over a million bucks, Carcillo has a good case for making at least that much. Arbitration hearings are held from July 20th to August 4th. The Flyers will likely be talking with Carcillo up until that point in an effort to avoid arbitration.

Darroll Powe has not filed for arbitration but I would expect him to get a contract offer somewhere slightly above the $520,000 he made last year.
