Maybe not next year.

If the NHL offer was accepted we could be looking at a cap in the $64M range next year. Here is the current situation that the usual suspects would face with $64M cap.

Boston 	$11M	8	Rask	
Minn	$13M 	7	Backstrom	
Van	$8M	10	Edler	
Cal	$16M	8	Iginla	
Philly	$12M	8		
SJ	$10M	9		
Chi	$7M	6		
Buf	$14M	9		
Wash	$19M	11		
Tor	$23M	10	Lupul	
La	$15M	10		
Mon	$4M	7		
Det 	$19M	8	Filpula	Howard
Pitt	$12M 	8		
NYR	$12M	7	Stepan	Redden?
The chart lists the present cap space, the number of players needed to be signed and any potentially key FA decisions. I have also removed the cap hit for Savard and Pronger, but did not adjust for bonuses as we don't know how they will be counted. In case of the NYR, they might also be on the hook for Redden.

This last offseason was the perfect storm for big named FA. The big jump in the cap created lots of spending room and in addition teams wanted to make moves before the newCBA was in place. The next couple of years could be very lean for FA's as there will be a very limited amount of money to spend.
