Karlsson, Duchene, Pavelski, Doughty and Seguin Will All Be Free Agents in the 2019-20 Season

You read all of that correct. Many teams will be scrambling to assemble their offer sheets in the next year.

I have here the top players who will be free agents in the 2019-20 season ranked by current cap hit. While the Top 10 of talent is astounding there are many active players with significant raises ahead.

Ranked 29th on the list is Nikita Kucherov, Rankedd 39th is Max Pacioretty, ranked 41st is Cam Talbot and ranked 47th is Wayne Simmonds.

Many of these players are franchise players and are due for massive contracts. I’d estimate that in terms of the top 10 players on this list, the AAV for their subsequent contracts will be close to 10 million. Karlsson, Bobrovsky, Doughty, Duchene, Pavelski, and Couture have the capabilities of being franchise players, or the most talented players on their team.

San Jose will notably have to address these contracts as both Couture and Pavelski are both still on the Sharks. Thornton will likely be retired by then, leaving some cap room. Edmonton will be in a pickle if Talbot continues his dominance in Edmonton. Having massive contracts dedicated to their forwards, as well as moderate contracts on D, long term Talbot will likely seek a large contract. While none of this is set in stone as this is a few seasons away, is is definitely a case to look at later.
