10 - Number of players on the current roster who will be either restricted or unrestricted free agents on July 1. Devante Smith-Pelly, Tom Wilson, Travis Boyd, Madison Bowey, and Philipp Grubauer are all set to be RFAs in a few weeks, while Alex Chiasson, Jay Beagle, John Carlson, Michal Kempny, and Jakub Jerabek will be unrestricted.

The team’s projected cap hit for next season (per CapFriendly) is $63,784,295; with the salary cap expected to go up to around $80 million, that leaves them with about $16 million in cap space... so who stays and who goes?

Tough decisions ahead for sure.
