I think a lot of teams are going to be waiting to see how the new CBA turns out before thinking about taking on cap dump trades. Right now, what the floor and ceiling are for next season may not be what they actually end up as.

Not to mention, if the cap drops dramatically (I don't see the NHL getting the 46% of revenue that they're asking for now, but I do see the percentage lowering from the 57% that the players get currently), there is going to need to be some sort of salary rollback or there will be multiple teams needing to make some cap dump trades. If that's the case, teams with the cap space will have their choice of players that need to be moved for salary reasons.
