The NHL preseason is soon coming to a close, and teams are paring down their rosters for the 2016-17 season.

Some franchises are still looking to sign players who are holding out for new deals, others are considering extensions for next year's batch of potential free agents. 

There are some big names set to become unrestricted, like the bearded Joe Thornton (above). Many others are going to be restricted free agents looking for much bigger contracts, which could affect their team's salary cap structure and force decisions to be made in other areas of the roster.
