Chicago Plans

from the Chicago Tribune,

One of the worst-kept secrets around the NHL is that the cap is going to rise next season, likely to $48 million. The Hawks, however, probably will be somewhere between $42 million and $44 million.
That means, barring trades involving significant salaries, the Hawks may not be very active when the July 1 free-agent signing period begins.
With Toews signing, the Hawks have just below $38 million committed in salaries for next season. Tallon said he expects to use the No. 1 pick in the June 22 entry draft and hopes whomever the team selects will be able to play this upcoming season in Chicago.
Tallon said he hasn’t had any discussion about trading the pick and it appears the Hawks will choose from either Patrick Kane, James VanRiemsdyk or Kyle Turris.
