    A bit reverse from a more typical scenario...

    Assemble the worst team you can, spending to or very near to the Cap upper limit, with currently active NHL players.

    I think this will be quite a challenge, because certainly there will need to be some fairly decent players included, but probably players who are overpaid for the talent they typically show. It'll be curious to see what players the team consists of.

    I know Vinny, Umby and MacDonald will be starring on this team for sure

    Lol...Edmonton Oilers.

    Add whomever you would like to fill in the remainder, won't make a difference.

    Modify Flyers lineup slightly to start and you are almost done.

    No idea on dan boyle. Haven't heard his name though, assuming he hasn't been that good.

    Missing 10 players but only have 11.3m left, just insert some awful players on cheap contracts. I'm probably wrong on a couple of the people I have listed but this is what I came up with without thinking too hard about it. Don't watch most of these people play, just going off of reputations other posters give the players.

    So, right off the bat we seem to have some combination of the Flyers and the Oilers... LOL... perhaps it wasn't as challenging as I first imagined.

    I think the OP meant that the team should still be under the cap.
