The Flyers added a second preseason game to be played at the Spectrum. The Spectrum is due to be knocked down at the end of this season but apparently fans have been grabbing tickets for the Spectrum-held games. Maybe Comcast should knock down the Wachovia Center and keep the Spectrum.
Also, is San Jose’s Kyle McLaren on his way to another team due to depth and salary cap issues? McLaren seems prepared for that scenario, even as he hopes to stay on in with the Sharks.
It’s not a given he’ll go to the Kings as they seem to have finally hit the salary cap floor. But here’s an interesting tidbit from Rich Hammond: While the Kings comply with the cap, internally, they follow an annual cash budget. Apparently, that’s why they front-loaded Jarret Stoll’s contract; to save money for next season.
