07:30 AM ET 09.30 | As of Sunday evening, the Flyers had made no official announcements regarding their roster -- which finds them still over the NHL salary cap. General manager Paul Holmgren said he hasn't figured out just yet what becomes of Adam Hall and Bruno Gervais now that they cleared waivers. "Without giving away any details, secrets, we'll know [on Monday]," Holmgren said. "Nothing needs to be finalized from our standpoint till 5 p.m. [Monday]. "That's when I'll make everyone aware of what we're doing. I'm not trying to be secretive, but we're still juggling things. I'm trying to decide what's best." A decision on Hal Gill (tryout) is also pending on Monday. ... The Flyers have been trying to orchestrate a trade to lose significant salary cap dollars on defense but so far have not succeeded.

You and I can figure that out but .... that math is too difficult for Paul Holmgren to grasp.

Hehehehehehe

More importantly, how the hell did the interns not put up the rumour de jour - Bryzgalov to the Pens?! DWI called it.

I've been saying it all along. Forget MAF and sign Ilya Nikolayevich Bryzgalov. They finally listened! :-)

I can't see them fitting Bryz under the cap. I also don't see him as that much of an upgrade over MAF.
