The biggest plus for a potential playoff lineup is that Shero has a ton of cap room to work with to add a piece or two. Obviously that works best by trading for a guy on an expiring contract, but it might be possible to leverage a team that might struggle to get underneath the decreased cap next season and land a decent player with term remaining.

Will be interesting to see how the trade deadline works this year. Going by the '95 lockout season, the regular season ran from Jan. 20 to May 3. The trade deadline was on April 7. Reasonable to think this year could follow the same pattern.
