Flyers sign Dan Carcillo to one year contract

Being over the salary cap isn't stopping the Flyers from signing players: restricted free agent Dan Carcillo has signed a one year contract worth 1.075 million to remain with the team. Agreeing to a contract at this time means that the Flyers have avoided arbitration with Carcillo. This contract is a small raise from the near 900,000 Carcillo made last year and will make him a restricted free agent again after next season.

The Flyers are now about 2.5 million dollars above the cap and they still have to sign restricted free agent Darroll Powe. There has been very little talk of on the Simon Gagne trade front, which could mean something is imminent or it could mean that nothing is going on. Moving Gagne's 5.25 million dollar salary would give the Flyers about 2 million dollars after signing Powe to add one more piece to the team.
