Many Boston fans will be saying Tim Thomas in this thread, however I'm rather inclined to believe that it would be Marc Savard. The factors would of course be the longevity of his contract (5 seasons counting this one at a cap hit of $4,007,143) compared to Thomas' (1 year at $5,000,000) and the situation it puts the team in every offseason (have to account for that cap in their budget until the official start of the season enabling him to go on LTIR, which essentially uses the overage percentage allowed in the offseason). Plus Thomas isn't getting paid this season at all and will be a likely easy player to trade to a team in need of cap without spending a fortune (it would literally be $0.00 paid to the guy this year).

These two moves alone would land the Bruins at $58,298,333 - just below the proposed cap and at a 21 man roster.
