Danny Briere will be starting his first full season as Flyers General Manager with $1,187,500 in extra cap charges due to the team using LTIR all season long.
The reason this happened is because the Flyers had to use long term injured reserve (LTIR), with Ryan Ellis being out since the start of 2022 and Sean Couturier not playing this season. This means that the performance bonuses players earn that season will become a cap charge in the following season. The overage charges happen so everyone fits under the cap for next season.
At the conclusion of the NHL regular season, the performance bonuses earned by players are added to their team's final season cap. So if the resulting total exceeds the NHL cap, the excess is a cap hit for the following season. Seen as a performance bonus carryover overage cap charge.
The Flyers used $3,937,906 dollars in LTIR this season. This resulting in the Flyers losing out on $1,187,500 million for next season and that's not all, If Noah Cates is named to the All-Rookie Team the Flyers lose another $212,500 dollars. The Flyers had three players who earned bonuses, Noah Cates, Justin Braun and Cam York which pushed the Flyers over the cap space.
The NHL cap space will be increasing by at least $1 million next season, the Flyers and 14 other teams will have a good part of that taken up from bonus overages from this season.
