NHL Teams Most in Need of a Significant Salary-Cap Hike

December 15th, 2015 by Lyle Richardson Leave a reply »
On Dec. 7, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman projected the salary-cap ceiling for 2016-17 could rise by $3 million above the current level of $71.4 million. Such an increase could come as good news for several teams, like the Chicago Blackhawks (pictured above), carrying limited cap room for next season. 

For the teams on this list, a substantial increase in the cap ceiling will have a notable effect on their respective rosters for 2016-17. It'll provide them the cap space to re-sign key players. It will also determine if they'll have enough room to bid competitively for talent in next summer's free-agent market. 

Here's a look at the NHL teams most in need of a significant hike in next season's salary-cap ceiling. Feel free to weigh in with your thoughts in the comments section below.
