The Boston Bruins are one of many teams that may need roster makeovers as a result of a reduced salary cap.

When the NHL lockout comes to an end, teams are going to have to form rosters with a reduced salary cap.

The NHL allowed its teams to pay $70.2 million in salary in the 2011-12 season. While negotiations are still ongoing, the salary-cap figure for the 2013-14 season looks like it will be in the $60 million range.

According to CapGeek.com, 16 teams currently are paying $60 million or more in salary. Six of those teams are paying $65 million or more.

Here's a look at the six highest-paying teams that will need to go through roster makeovers as a result of the reduced salary cap.
