Plan B's, trade with cap space issued teams for a player they need so the team over the cap or teams near the cap need to shed salary to make room for salary.

Teams in this category:

OVER THE CAP

Anaheim - 23 players signed, but 3,235,000 over the cap
Calgary - 24 players signed, but 1,449,167 over the cap (not including Andre Roy signing $'s)
Chicago - 21 players signed, but 415,999 over the cap with 2 spots left on roster
NY Rangers - 24 players signed, but 302,176 over the cap
Philadelphia - 21 players signed, but 1,031,667 over the cap with 2 spots left on roster
Washington - 24 players signed, but 1,192,212 over the cap

UNDER THE CAP (But require space)

Dallas - 20 players signed, but only 1,715,000 left for 3 players to fill their 23 man roster
New Jersey - 23 players signed, but only 1,350,594 left for trade deadline space
Pittsburgh - 22 players signed, but only 1,779,933 lesft for 1 roster player or trade deadline
San Jose - 20 players signed, but only 1,374,166 left for 3 players to fill their 23 man roster

Of interest....Vancouver and Tampa.

If Vancouver signs Sundin they will have 69,167 lest under the cap for any additional signing or trade deadline deal.

Tampa has too many players on their roster and need to shed some players.

Players of interest for the Habs from these teams that could be available:

Ducks; Schneider, Beauchemin or Kunitz
Flames; Aucoin
Hawks; Havlat, Seabrook or Barker
Rangers; no one
Flyers; Briere (if willing to lift no trade clause), Gagne
Caps; Kozlov

Stars; Lehtinen
Devils; Madden
Pens; no one (all the good one's aren't going anywhere)
Sharks; Marleau (obvious because of rumours - NTC though), McLaren

Nucks; Kesler, Bieksa
Bolts; St. Louis (NTC?) only player that interests me outside of untouchable Vinnie

Are there any players form these teams you would use for Plan B, or from others????

If Sakic were willing to leave, yeah sign him but he is playing in Denver or hanging them up only. Shanny isn't the area we need help, we need centre help and maybe a top 4 dman.

Who is left as UFA's out there other than players like Sundin, Sakic, Selanne and Shanahan who all seem to be players thinking of retirement or focusing on one team???
