I just don't see why teams will give up on their good young talent, Ottawa wouldn't. I doubt there will be too many good players available this summer regardless of the cap coming down teams will find a way to get good players under the cap. What we will see are guys who are cap problems for teams like Richards & Luongo & older guys who could help veteran teams but not teams looking to get younger.
I was thinking of a guy like Tomas Fleischmann LW who was rumoured to be available at the trade deadline. I don't think he would be too expensive, he has a very manageable contract with one yr left on it & he has a track record of putting up points. Fleischmann - Spezza - Michalek would be a good line for a couple of yrs until Silfverberg & Stone are ready to move up to the top line. He is under 30 yrs old, has decent size & has had a couple of 50 pt seasons. I also think we have players in Bingo for the bottom six & on defence moving forward.
