Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Spector at his Fox Sports blog,
As always, some of the speculation over potential free-agent movement is a little wild, specifically that some forget teams now operate under a salary cap.
That cap is expected to rise from the current $44 million to possibly $48 million, perhaps even higher, leaving roughly half of the 30 NHL teams with more than $20 million in available cap space with which to bolster their respective rosters for next season.
Sadly, some rumormongers seem unaware which of those teams have this available cap space.
A recent internet rumor suggested the Dallas Stars might have interest in Montreal Canadiens defenseman Sheldon Souray should he become an unrestricted free agent on July 1….
So to those reporting on potential destinations for this summer’s top free agents, remember to keep the salary cap in mind when posting your speculations.
