THERE'S MORE than one way to skin a cap. Yesterday's 5 o'clock deadline to be salary-cap compliant has been hanging over the Flyers' brass all summer, yet it took the management team nearly all of the allotted time to get its roster set. In the end, it was more a question of "when" and "how" than "who. " By sending forward Adam Hall and defenseman Bruno Gervais to the AHL, general manager Paul Holmgren said the Flyers cleared the $64.3 million upper limit by an estimated $25,000.

The 76ers' opening day of training camp provided a glimpse of what to expect this season. Instead of overloading players, new coach Brett Brown chose to work on just a few things during Saturday's two-hour morning session at St. Joseph's Hagan Arena. "We really just slowly implemented what would be the face of our offense and the face of our defense and made sure we are smart with what you can expect from Day 1," Brown said. The former San Antonio Spurs assistant said he has learned over the years that the first session of multiple two-a-days is the most dangerous one. "Because you get so excited to coach, again," said Brown, whose team also worked out Saturday evening.

WASHINGTON - When Chris Vande Velde entered the Wells Fargo Center for training camp on Sept. 12, the only person he knew was Phantoms goaltender Yann Danis, whom he played with in Edmonton. He'd heard of Matt Read before - but that's because he played against Read in college. It's very likely, actually, that most of the Flyers' brass didn't know who Vande Velde was either. Months after playing 11 NHL games, Vande Velde only earned an invitation to training camp because he played hockey at the University of North Dakota with assistant general manager Ron Hextall's son. There was no press release sent out when VandeVelde signed an AHL contract after camp started.

New 76er Royce White wants to dispel any speculation that air travel will hinder him from playing for the team this season. The 6-foot-8 forward, who has an anxiety disorder, said Friday he planned on flying with the team to Europe next week for exhibition games in Bilbao, Spain, and Manchester, England. "I think the most glaring [misconception], probably, from paying attention to the public opinions has to be that I can't fly," White said. "(A) that I don't want to fly. And (B) that I won't fly by choice.

IF THERE HAS BEEN a season that has had lower expectations for the 76ers recently, you would have to go back a long time. A run at one of the eight playoff spots in the Eastern Conference doesn't appear to be realistic. And that could be the way this organization needs to go right now, as building for the future is the priority. Gone are the past two All-Stars, Andre Iguodala and Jrue Holiday. Veteran players are scarce, young ones abound and a first-time NBA head coach will oversee it all. Tomorrow, the Sixers will have their first two practices of training camp, held again this year at Saint Joseph's University.

While goalies Ray Emery and Steve Mason are dueling for the Flyers' starting job in training camp, there are indications that the competition will carry into the regular season. "I think we have two good goaltenders that will play a lot," coach Peter Laviolette said after a fast-paced camp session Monday at the Wells Fargo Center. "We're going to pick one to start the season and see the other one probably shortly after that. They've both done a real nice job. " The Flyers have three exhibition games left, including Tuesday's at the Wells Fargo Center against the New Jersey Devils, and they open the regular season Oct. 2 against visiting Toronto.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said he still expected Dan Cleary to attend the opening of training camp Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center, although reports suggested that the veteran left winger may end up with another team. Holmgren had announced Tuesday that Cleary, 34, an unrestricted free agent, had accepted an invitation to attend camp on a tryout contract. The GM called Cleary, a longtime productive player with the Detroit Red Wings, a "glue guy" who could play in all situations.

DAN CLEARY may not be a Flyer after all. The Flyers were expecting Cleary to report to training camp yesterday for medical evaluations and media responsibilities, but he apparently has cold feet about leaving Detroit. According to TSN's Aaron Ward, Cleary instead traveled to Traverse City, Mich., to meet with Red Wings general manager Ken Holland and coach Mike Babcock. Cleary, 34, held out until the eve of training camp to try to negotiate a new deal to stay in Detroit, where he has played since 2005.
