At The Cap

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

It’s a tossup which team is in the worst position vis-a-vis the salary cap in the NHL, the Los Angeles Kings or the Anaheim Ducks.

The Kings are $12 million below the $40-million floor and they have been non-players in the free-agent market. They do have some restricted free agents like Jarret Stoll and Patrick O’Sullivan to sign, but they might be forced to overpay just to meet the minimum.

The Ducks are one of four teams that are currently above the $56.3-million cap. They have overspent by $2.4 million and it can’t all be Kevin Lowe’s fault. Other teams over the cap are the Philadelphia Flyers, Chicago Blackhawks and the Calgary Flames.
