I think having a salary cap puts a bit more in the minds of a GM. It's not as cut and dry as it was before. The "market" for a d-man of Zidlicky's caliber really isn't equal for all teams in the league...

If there are 3 or 4 teams requiring a top 4 d-man then the price will go up for sure. I'm not sure this signing will make a lick of difference, if anything it just removed a d-man from the mix of available guys - which means the supply goes down - and the demand goes up for the remaining ones. Demand goes up, price goes up, etc.
