On the subject of who may be available for trade,

Teams that may need to cut payroll this offseason:

Philadelphia - $61.3M committed to 18 players
RFAs: Rinaldo, Zolnierczyk
Possible targets: Coburn, Mezsaros, Briere

They could actually roll with their roster and be fine cap-wise, but Holmgren still may want to clear some space.

Vancouver - $60.4M committed to 14 players
RFAs: Schroeder, Weise, Tanev
Possible Targets: Kesler, Edler/Hamhuis/Garrison/Ballard, Luongo

Tanev probably gets a significant raise. Moving Luongo would make things much easier for them.

Chicago - $59.1M committed to 17 players
RFAs: Kruger, Leddy
Possible Targets: Hjalmarrson, Bolland, Frolik, Oduya

Leddy will get a massive raise, so they're probably looking at around $63M on 18 players in that case.

Rangers - $54M committed to 18 players
RFAs - Stepan, Hagelin, McDonaugh, Sauer
Possible Targets: Hagelin, Richards, Stralman

Can they keep Stepan, Hagelin, and McDonaugh under $10M?

San Jose - $53.7M committed to 13 players
RFAs: Galiardi, Sheppard, Demers, Stalock
Possible Targets: Marleau, Thornton, Pavelski, Stuart

Could be our best chance at a top C.
