Maybe the 'Yotes can force the Bruins to make a trade they don't want to do. Peverley could potentially veto it with his NTC. Krejc, Hamiton, and Lucic (a long shot). And I don't think any other player who could be available would interest the Coyotes.
All other teams, I would suspect, that need to get under the cap, would use the buy out amnesty (that is expected to be implemented). But then again, we don't know what kind of salary cap they are talking about (hard or soft).
I know, probably wishful thinking!
Heard Edmonton might be the favorite to land Thomas' salary with Peverly included in the deal.
