Looking at the NHL’s Cap-Crunched Teams

The dust is starting to settle from NHL free agency, although a few big names – mainly Nazem Kadri – remain available.

We’ve also seen some trades; like always, many of those moves involved dumping salary. While more signings and trades will occur, several teams are in significant cap trouble.

According to CapFriendly, nine NHL teams are poised to spend over the salary cap in 2022-2023. Using LTIR, however, not all of those teams are in trouble…at least not yet, but these teams will be watching their cap closely this season, and will need to crunch the numbers if they intend to make any additions to their rosters.
