Yeah I agree. Realized while doing this that while they have a ton of space, it's definitely not unlimited cap space. I originally wanted to see what signing Karlsson and Hayes would look like, but Hayes turned out to be too expensive to I thought Nelson was a good backup plan for what Fletcher is looking for.
This was kind of more just a short-term thought experiment to see what, in my opinion, an ideal Flyers team would look like next year, but you're right; the long-term cap implications make it a bit unrealistic.
