From Paul Kukla at NHL.com:
This is the main reason we are not seeing many trades early in the season—the cap situation prevents it.
You may say, “But my team is way below the cap, they can afford so-and-so.” True, but do remember, teams have established their own internal cap figure and may not want to go above it for budgetary reasons.
So, the first thing that should be in your mind when you think of or read about a possible trade is, does it fit within the cap. If not, move on and start thinking of a trade that not only will make sense, but also fit within the salary-cap structure.
