AAAAAAAAAAAH yes!
This a most interesting time in the NHL.
This the the reality check for many GM'S

Those that signed players to big multi year contracts have their hands tied in making deals. The Gm meetings will prove to be the wake up call.
Those that are stuck will want to make moves BUT it will be a buyers market. Those with Cap room ( not many) hold the cards.
Yes some players will move but some are really stuck.The very best player will get all the attention but thats about it.

Sure a few cheap moves and maybe 1 BIG name move and then all the rest of the stuck GM'S will go home not knowing what to do next. ( the reality check) Dumping and making up cap space is not as easy as it sounds.

After all is said and done, the GM's that still have cap space just have to wait it out until a very sweet deal comes their way.

How bad is it for some teams? well if your at or near 44 mil and your team is just plain BAD, your out of options. Nobody wants your players, your contracts. Everyone wants your BEST assets in compensation to help you out. Wait for the trade deadline and HOPE somebody wants a rent a player for nothing in return.
