Agreed.
However, even if there is a salary cap I don't think it's going to prevent Dolan letting Sather get the players he wants to land.
A good example are the occupants at the Garden. The Knicks. That team is well beyond the cap and will be for years. Atleast until Houston is done and/or traded. I still can't believe Allan Houston makes just about as much as Tim Duncan.
Anyway, I can see the following FA's being signed:
Lindros-I think Lindros will be signed if he takes on a cheaper contract, which he should consider. The Rangers have treated him like a king.
Rucinsky-I think he'll come back if Lundmark is somehow dealt. If Lundmark isn't dealt I would like to see him move to LW on a line with Holik and Balej. He needs to get his scoring and game up. Just a little.
Barnaby-Because he's Barnaby. I'm a big fan of him. Adds juice, pumps up the team, backs up his players, etc.

Lundmark*/Rucinsky-Holik-Balej
Jagr-Lindros-Prucha
Murray-Betts-Barnaby
Wiseman-Moore-Ortmeyer

Kasparaitis-Rachunek
Kondratiev-Tyutin
Pock-Poti*/Lampman

Dunham*/Mclennan*/Lundqvuist/Valiquette
*-If not somehow traded
