The Rangers managed to dump Gomez. Gaborik almost exactly fills in that salary void. The Canadiens had like half their team go into free agency. So they've swapped Koivu, Tanguay, Kovalev, and Komisarek for Gomez, Cammalleri, Gionta, and Spacek.

Hawks also had 12+ freed up between Havlat and Khabibulin. They can free up another 2.33 million by hiding Brent Sopel in the minors as well. They won't be in cap hell until next season when Kane, Toews, and Keith are RFA. Unless somebody throws Penner-esque offer sheets at Versteeg or Barker.
