I've found it interesting to look at teams that will be in cap trouble come the offseason, so I figured I'd list some examples. Note that the expiring contracts include only those of players who are currently in the NHL, and that the cap space is that which will exist after the listed contracts expire.

 

Anaheim

Cap space: $10.8m

 

Expiring contracts:

Selanne

Koivu

Steckel

Palmieri (RFA)

Bilesky (RFA)

Lydman

Lovejoy

 

 

Vancouver

Cap space: $3.9m (yikes!)

 

Expiring contracts:

Malhotra

Raymond

Higgins

Schroeder (RFA)

Lapierre

Weise (RFA)

Sestito (RFA)

Ebbett

Pinizzotto

Gordon

Alberts

Barker

 

 

NYR

Cap space: $11m

 

Expiring contracts:

Stepan (RFA)

Hagelin (RFA)

Zuccarello (RFA)

Hamrlik

McDonagh (RFA)

Sauer (RFA)

Eminger

Gilroy

 

 

Philadelphia

Cap space: $2.2m

 

Expiring Contracts:

Gagne

Fedotenko

Shelley

Knuble

Zolnierczyk

Rinaldo

Walker

Foster

Gustafsson

Huskins

Lauridsen

Leighton

 

 

Chicago

Cap space: $4.5m

 

Expiring contracts:

Kruger (RFA)

Stalberg

Mayers

Bickell

Roszival

Leddy (RFA)

Emery

 

 

Pittsburgh, Montreal, Tampa, and Boston may also be forced to make some changes.

Like the potential of this thread. Would love to look at this after the trade deadline. Especially Vancouver if they are unable to move luongo

Yeah, this is going to be an interesting dynamic to the off season, or even this trade deadline. These teams need to trim salary, so there could be some good deals.

Carolina, Boston, San Jose, and Tampa Bay all have just around $1M / roster spot to fill (going by rosters listed on Capgeek). Most have all their key spots filled, but still candidates to dump salary.

Those figures don't exclude the players on LTIR like Pronger. Might not be many others. Not too sure.

 

I think Vancouver is in the most trouble. Should be interesting to see how the goalie situation plays out.

There will be some big names bought out this summer. IIRC the 2 buyouts have to be used this year. This is the last chance for teams to free themselves of the bad contracts on there books. One of the reasons we should dump franzen-we have the chance to.

 

TB will also be a team to watch in this regard.

The talk of Franzen getting bought-out is so ignorant and asinine it's unbelievable.  Fun conjecture for knee-jerk reaction fans i guess.

Franzen should be bought out. Why? To send a message that you can have all the talent in the world, but if you take entire games off, you have no place on the team.

This message would cost Wings about $15M (over 14 years). Plus they would need to find a replacement and pay that guy. Does not look like a good transaction.

 

If Wings want to buy somebody out they should go for Samuelsson. He got just one year left.

While I agree 100%, it's unlikely this will happen because you can't buy out an injured player.

The Wings don't have to buy somebody out, you can just send them to the Griffins and get rid off their salary.

 

As for teams in cap crunch, keep in mind the cap will go up after next season again so we are talking about a one year transition period here.

nope, you send an nhl player down and you are still going to have their cap hit, minus like a small percentage

Sammy's not hurt. Or maybe you're just expecting him to be hurt by the end of the year...

For the cap to go up from $64.3M, league-wide revenue would have to be over $3.7B. That's a fairly large increase even if the lockout didn't do any damage.

 

It's certainly possible it could happen, but I wouldn't count on it. Either way, a possible cap increase in the future won't help anyone next year.

I like the look of that roster, add subtract what you want to get bobby ryan and bouwmeester there, but assuming we could get both, that is roughly how our roster would have to look to keep our team cap friendly

From what I heard in Tampa recently, there have been suggestions to buy-out Vinny. Not sure Yzerman would do that though. If he does though, that takes off a lot of pressure
