This is going to be a wild summer in Florida. If the cap goes up, Dale Tallon might need to spend $30 million US just to get to the floor. Tallon will be helped by three things: the money (obviously), his own reputation in rebuilding the Blackhawks and the decision to keep Stephen Weiss and David Booth. Good players will want to play with other good players. He's also in great position to take advantage of teams needing to drop high-level talent for budgetary reasons.
