Salary Cap, RFAs, Comparables - How might one scenario impact others?

The signing of Adam Henrique, to a six-year deal with a $4 M annual salary cap hit, by the New Jersey Devils may have implications around the NHL. Consider the Toronto Maple Leafs current scenario, relating to Nazem Kadri, as a comparable.

Henrique is a 23-year-old center who tallied 16 goals and 35 assists in his rookie season, which was good enough to garner the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie player. In the playoffs he even added 13 points in 24 more games. He followed that up by slumping to only 11 goals and five assists in his sophomore campaign last season. Even with that backward step, he heads into this training camp as no worse than the team's number two center, likely battling Travis Zajac for power play time as well.
