I'm hoping the new CBA favors the Coyotes.
Reduction in the cap and Amnesty Buy Outs may give the 'Yotes opportunities to tweak their roster. I don't think the cap will get reduced to $58Mil, more like $61.6Mil (50-50)

unless the Bruins can get someone to take Thomas off their hands (wonder what it would take, since the Coyotes will probably have the space), they may be forced to trade a roster player, doubt they'll buy out anyone
Heatley may be the big name in the buy outs, most I suspect, will be considered depth players
Canucks may end up dumping Luongo (compare to his actual worth)
May make the Flames look real hard at rebuilding the franchise or at least in trading Bouwmeester
Sharks may have to reduce their cap hit

wouldn't mind Connolly at a reduce rate (if he gets bought out). I've convinced myself that he would have the same kind of chemistry with Korpikoski as Vermette has with Boedker.
