There has been a lot of talk that the NHL's new collective bargaining agreement will include a clause allowing each team to dispose of one contract without taking a cap hit over the course of the new agreement. The NBA had a similar clause in its latest CBA.
Here is a look at the player each NHL team is most likely to jettison if this rule is enacted. In some cases, there are no good fits for this description right now, but I included the player who would be the best available candidate right now.
In other cases, if there was clearly no good candidate for early termination, I included free agents who the team did not want back next season.
Please feel free to tell me who you feel may be a better candidate to fill each team's slot, but say why you feel that way.
