The Future!

Steve says:

It will be very interesting to see what teams do this trade deadline. Not only from a trading point of view but more importantly from a re-signing standpoint.
The reason is this. With the worlds economy going to the shitter, and teams all over the US struggling, it is expected that the NHL and the NHLPA will have to discuss lowering the salary cap to be more in line with the projected economy. They are looking at dropping it 3-5 million.

Where that comes into play is the salaries of current players will not go down relative to the salary cap reduction. which means teams that have signed players to long term deals for HUGE amounts will have to move a lot of other players to fit under the cap.

That makes situations like the upcoming Jaybo deal very intriguing...
