Flyers recall Brayden Schenn, continue to artfully dodge the salary cap | ProHockeyTalk

[...][T]he Flyers have recalled highly-touted prospect Brayden Schenn from their AHL affiliate in Adirondack. [...] Publicly, the Flyers suggested Schenn started in the minors so he could recover from a shoulder injury, but the $1.75 million they saved off the salary cap (Schenn’s contact had a bonus structure where his cap hit would drop if he played one game in the AHL) was hard to ignore. [...][The] Flyers have the NHL’s highest payroll with no wiggle room whatsoever. This explains why GM Paul Holmgren sent Zac Rinaldo (who KOed Drew Doughty over the weekend) and Harry Zolnierczyk (who scored his first NHL goal last night) down to the AHL today [...] [They] have "about $21,000 in cap space" [...].

[...][The] focus now is on where Schenn, a center, fits in the lineup. Philly is deep down the middle with Daniel Briere, Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier and Max Talbot [...]. The easiest solution might be to send the 18-year-old Couturier back to junior in Drummondville, but he’s got three points in four games and is tied for the team lead with a plus-4 rating. It’ll be interesting to see how Holmgren juggles things [...].

That's the same problem the Kings had last year at this time. No room at center. I wonder if Philly will try him at wing, as Terry Murray was not so willing to do.
