Looking at the NHL’s Cap-Crunched Teams


The dust is starting to settle from NHL free agency, although some big names – primarily Nazem Qadri – remain available.

according to capfriendly, nine NHL teams are set to spend more than the salary limit in 2022-2023. Using the LTIR, though, all those teams aren’t in trouble… at least not yet, but these teams will be watching their hats closely this season, and if they intend to make any additions to their roster. If so, they will need to reduce the number.
