Seeing as how that makes is VERY hard for them to re-sign Ennis, not to mention the implications if the cap actually goes down, it can definitely hurt.

It's going to make it really, really difficult to resign/sign talented players in the future. Not only will they not have space to improve the team with solid NHL players in the future, they will almost certainly lose some of their own.
