Outside of contracts, I think teams that are close to making the playoffs and needed the momentum to continue will hurt.

Calgary Flames will take a hit with an aging team. Jarome needs to be resigned and won't make as much because his window to win is closing and don't think that he walks in free agency.

San Jose might see a hit with both the aging part and contract situations. It will come down to a last year of contracts with Thornton, Marleau, Pavelski, Boyle while Clowe and Handzus already hitting the market.

Detroit might be a team that re-evaluates where they sit. Datsyuk will get resigned but I have a feeling that Val Filpula might collect elsewhere. Regardless, system still wins here and he can be replaced if he leaves.
