The Numbers: Can Philly Fit Dan Hamhuis In The Fold?

The questions in Philly today are simple. Can they fit Dan Hamhuis in the mix? From The Rink, our general hockey blog, examines their salary cap situation:

If they resigned Hamhuis -- who could go for anything from $3 -$4.5 million in cap space, that's about $18 - $19 million invested in their top-four defenseman. They'd still have to fill out their blueline by signing a guy or two, and their 11 signed forwards already take up $32.4 million in cap space.

So let's assume the Flyers signed Hamhuis and have $19 million tied up in their top-four defensemen. Then they have to make room for two players, so let's take that to, say $20.5 million. That's 17 players of combined forward and defense for $53 million. Brian Boucher makes 0.5 million, so that brings the total up to 18 players for $53.5 million.
