Lou Lamoriello is facing an unpredictably unprecedented offseason, with the salary cap remaining flat at $81.5 million for 2020-21 and, he anticipates, "likewise the next year."

"There are going to be more players available than people think," the Islanders president and general manager said on Tuesday during his end-of-season press conference, conducted via Zoom in deference to the COVID-19 pandemic that has upended the NHL’s finances.
