A Look At The Salary Cap For Specific Teams

from Lyle Richardson of Spector's Hockey,

Among the 16 teams carrying between $11 million and $19 million in cap space, the Carolina Hurricanes ($11.7 million, 16 players under contract) and Pittsburgh Penguins ($14.6 million, 14 players under contract) will find it difficult to re-sign or replace their key free agents.

This group also contain “budget clubs” (teams which usually don’t spend up to the cap ceiling) like the Nashville Predators (19 players under contract, $17.8 million in cap space), Arizona Coyotes (18 players under contract, $17.9 million in cap space), Columbus Blue Jackets (17 players, $18.8 million) and Winnipeg Jets (16 players, $19 million). While they have lots of cap room on paper, their respective internal caps could be lower. Same goes for several teams with $20 million-plus in cap space, like the Dallas Stars ($20.3 million, 15 players under contract) and Colorado Avalanche ($20.9 million, 18 players).
