The ceiling for next season's salary cap was set Friday at $69 million - up from $64.3 million. That number is a million or two lower than some projections had it after a year of record revenues.
That said, it won't stop teams from courting the summer's top names, which include forwards Paul Stastny, Thomas Vanek, Dave Bolland and Mike Cammalleri, blueliners Matt Niskanen, Christian Ehrhoff and Dan Boyle and goaltenders Ryan Miller and Jonas Hiller.
