Kinda like last year with Kovalchuk, everything is up in the air until Stamkos, Parise, Doughty, and Weber get done.

Oncethose deals are made then other scenarios open up.

For instance, if tampa signs Stamkos to 8 mil or more, they may look to move a forward... same thing with Parise in NJ

Or, if either of those players is traded, look for the team that acquires them to look to trade a forward to make room.

I think as soon as the arbitration process works its way through(either with awards or contacts being signed beforehand) there will be a flurry of deals shortly thereafter.
