I do believe there will be more players available this time around with the amount of expiring contracts out there. Teams that are out or even bubble teams will try and get something for those players.
We'll find out at the deadline, but everything points to this deadline being a sellers market.

Cap space isn't an issue w/ the compliance cap. With the short season, many teams will still think they have a shot at a playoff berth.
