Unlikely, but unless they changed this in the new CBA, doctors don't make that call, his medical status is evaluated on an ongoing basis there's no official long term diagnosis.

if the hawks could keep their core together, the oilers will be able to as well.

This. The Oilers will be fine. We may have to cheap out on the bottom 6, but you can sometimes find quality in rookie contracts.

The Hawks lost some good players. Edmonton surely could keep their core together, but will they still be able to then fix their deficiencies? Not so sure.

True. I just don't see it though. Some GM will be a jacka** and offer a huge offer sheet.

The argument could be made that Byfuglien had played his way into Chicago's core and they moved him.

Really that is interesting would you consider anyone that was a lose to be part of the core or on the way into the core?

I think Philly's looks the worst. That Bryzgalov contract is so bad. They'll have to amnesty that baby.

Campbell and Ladd

I liked Niemi too because he was so calm and reliable. I thought that the team was confident that he wouldn't screw up or have a melt down.

False. This belief really needs to die.

We lost half our roster in one offseason though (easier to swallow when you have the Cup though)

our GM is pro-active and re-signs his core BEFORE they become RFAs (Hall, Eberle)

what was the cap back in 2010?
assuming all the "young guns" become studs....with a larger cap in the next few years, it's easier to keep stars as opposed to 2010

Maybe the Rangers with Stepan, Hagelin, and McDonagh needing contracts next year and Gaborik, Callahan, Kreider, Girardi, Del Zotto and Lundqvist the following year

Chicago had so much more talent than Edmonton has now. Their 7 most core guys got saved (Toews, Kane, Sharp, Hossa, Keith, Seabrook, Bolland) but their amazing depth got gutted (Buff, Ladd, Veersteg, Campbell and so on).

Edmonton has a smaller core and should be able to hold onto it but they don't have the high quality depth to lose in the first place.

The only team that will definitely be in cap trouble next offseason is Vancouver should they not move one of Luongo or Schneider. Maybe Chicago and maybe San Jose. Everyone else is looking pretty good despite the cap coming down. NHL GMs did a great job at keeping the expiring CBA in the back of their head when constructing the cap and individual deals of their respective clubs.

Vancouver will be close to cap but they are under no stress though. They can walk away from some UFAs like Malhotra (happening anyway) and will trade a player or two.

If worst comes to worst the league handed them "get out of jail free cards" in terms of amnesty buyouts.

Barker [$700k]

X-factor here: Luongo [$5.333M] may be traded soon.
With every passing day that Barker signing looks genius... No one else would have made that gamble...
