    Slim, but the COVID shutdown could cause weird things to happen in free agency depending on how and when the NHL resumes.

    With 30% cap cut talks for the next season, Holtby should pay $10M per year from his pocket so at least have a chance to make a training camp with Caps as a tryout this summer.

    I am confident that the league isn't going to reduce the cap as a lone response. The disruption to the players would be epic and the PA would demand something different. Its far too unsettled to project how any player up for a contract would be able to sign for.

    Well sure but its hard to see any scenario where the Cap goes up next year. And if the Caps stays the same Holtby will have to settle for much less than market value to stay with the Caps, given their other priorities.

    There is a scenario. Dreger was talking about it on the radio a couple weeks ago. It would a result of the league and pa agreeing to a cap that had nothing to do with revenues. They don't want massive player movement after this virus. How that effects Holtby I have no idea. The longer this goes on the more likely it is that the PA agrees to take a 25 to 40% discount on their contract numbers rather than keeping the contracts as they are and drop the cap

    At present its impossible to tell as they are now talking no sports with attendance thru 2021
