Cap Space Issues of the Top Teams

From Mike Chen at Fox Sports,

There are a few teams we’ll know for certain to be buyers, though. Let’s look at the cap space situation for the league’s top eight teams. If you’re wondering where the East Coast love is, don’t blame me. Other than the Sens, no Eastern team has cracked 50 points.

1. Detroit: With a cap space of $5.4 million, the Wings have enough room to make probably one major move for a UFA (paying a portion of his salary for this year). However, between their big-name players, much of their cap is tied up for next year, so don’t anticipate the Wings getting someone who may have a year or two left on his contract. Besides, one glance at Detroit on the ice and the only thing they may actually need is a cup of coffee to make sure they keep running at this pace.
