Anaheim’s Cap Situation

The Anaheim Ducks start this season with salary cap problems.  Cap Friendly lists them at a slightly over $72.6 million salary cap with a leaguewide cap of $73 million.  The problem is Hampus Lindholm remains at home without a contract as a restricted free agent.  There is no room to sign Lindholm without moving a current roster player.  

Lindholm is one of the better players on the Ducks.  He led the team in ice time last year. He is a good young player who is important to the success of the team.

Anaheim is in a position where they are open to another team with salary cap space signing Lindholm to an offer that they would not be able to match.  Watch this situation.  It could play out in a very interesting way.
