A running look at cap space and player needs - I Hate FA Edition


Following up on the post I made around the end of the season regarding cap space and players signed. With the ongoing trades and the new cap set, I wanted to set up a running look as trades happen, to be updated every couple days as things change. The way I'll be looking at it is:

1. Each team's currently signed players who played last year (including injury call-ups and such) up to a maximum of 12 forwards, 6 defensemen, 2 goalies.

2. If the team exceeds those numbers, the cheapest players will be dropped first.

3. I will also list how many RFAs the team has, since they're easier to hold on to. A listing of 9 F (+2 RFA) would mean 9 forwards are signed, and the team also has 2 RFA forwards not yet signed with a team.

4. This won't include carry-forward bonuses, because I don't have a good reliable source for them.

5. I am also including buyouts that I'm aware of, since they're the gift that keeps on giving.

6. Teams with a full lineup (12 F, 6 D, 2 G) will be bolded - even though they may make more moves, they could (in theory) be done.

7. Changes will be done in bolded italics to make them visible.
