With the salary floor rising to just over $54M next year and the labour situation unclear, is there now a market for overpaid players with a year or two left on their deals? Two thirds of the teams in the league are currently below the floor and half is more than $5M below. Phoenix has 17 players under contract but is $16M under the floor! Heck, even the Rangers are under the floor. That might get people expecting crazy stuff on Sunday but outside of guys like Parise teams won't want to lock into long term deals without knowing what will happen with the new CBA. For the Leafs, maybe that makes Connolly, Lombardi and Komisarek movable objects now. These are guys capable of taking a regular shift, just not worth what they are being paid. Each had slightly front loaded deals so they will cost less money than their cap hit. Maybe just wishful thinking for me, but who knows?
