Fire Sales Starting Soon

from the Globe and Mail,
There is not much out there at present, since the only teams out of the playoff race are the Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, St. Louis Blues, Chicago Blackhawks and Columbus Blue Jackets. However, in the next four weeks there could be as many as seven more teams joining the above five in a league-wide fire sale. With a hard salary cap, teams are more likely to start dealing once they figure the playoffs are out of reach because they want to be in optimum position under the cap for next season. Keep an eye on the New Jersey Devils, Atlanta Thrashers, New York Islanders, Montreal Canadiens, Florida Panthers and San Jose Sharks and maybe even the Colorado Avalanche in this regard.
