It's still close but not as bad as it was last year.
Yes, there shouldn't be any reason for us to lose players/picks due to the 50 contract limit next season. I don't know anything about Cal Heeter, but I imagine that they are looking to add a veteran goalie to back up Hovinen in the AHL and have Heeter be the starter in the ECHL. That might not require a NHL contract though.
