Thanks guys I pretty much put this whole fiasco to the side this entire time.
There's many ways it could affect our team. But on the surface, it looks like there's enough room to retain Edler (should he take 5m per), Higgins and Lapierre. Malhotra and Raymond would have to walk. Ballard would have to be traded/waived/bought out.
The UFA rules are the same. 8 years is the max term you can re-sign a player, and 7 years is the max term you can sign a UFA. Before there was no limit. This prevents Back Diving Contracts like the one Luongo has.
