If we only have 2mil in cap space, the remaining 2mil will be pushed onto next years cap.

That could be beneficial if we are looking to target a 35+ player like Briere.
Except this year is the year the Hawks have a little breathing room with the cap. It's gonna be crazy next year with Hammer, Shaw and Crawford up for new contracts... then Toews and Kane the following year.
