You are not making any sense. Columbus and Phoenix can still sign or at least try to sign the same players. THEY ALL ARE RESTRICTED BY THE SALARY CAP. Why is this is so hard for you to understand? They are all restricted by the rule about paying one player a max percentage of the cap. So, if Crosby was UFA today, he'd have every team that has the cap space offering him the max contract. If Columbus has the space, they can make the offer. If Toronto doesnt have the space, they can't. Then, it will be up to Crosby as to where he signs, as it should be.
