Looking Ahead—Far Ahead

Now we know how the rosters are going to look from here until the Stanley Cup is awarded…but what about after that? After all, only one team really gets to claim a successful season. Then it’s all about making trades at the draft and buying up free agents to re-shape your roster. Here’s a list of each team’s current cap hit for next year.

Keep in mind that the cap will apparently be staying very close to where it is now as a lot of this year’s revenues have already been accounted for (2010-11 is when the cap should drop assuming fans have less money to buy tickets in a poor economy). All numbers courtesy of NHL Numbers (check them out if you want to see how many holes your team will need to fill come July 1).

Anaheim 35.7
Atlanta 28.5
Boston 42.5
