from Kevn Allen at USA TODAY,
A record 25 deals involving 40 players were made at the March 9 deadline last season, but factors could limit the number of deals. Counting injury callups, the Flyers, Bruins, Buffalo Sabres and New Jersey Devils are over the $44 million cap. The San Jose Sharks, Colorado Avalanche, Vancouver Canucks, Ottawa Senators, Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning have less than $1 million remaining.
But salaries are prorated for cap purposes, meaning a team acquiring a player at the deadline will have to count only 40 days of his salary against the team cap. For example, a team acquiring Forsberg will count about $1.25 million of his $5.75 million salary.
