I mean 5 million below the NHL actual. Not a 5 mil reduction from the 60 now.


Now THAT I can handle!

Now that the deadline has come and gone, we get our first glimpse of where the Salary Cap is heading next season.

Currently combined, we as a league have $1,533,383,985 in salaries on our active rosters. The average active salary is $51,112,779.5 per team.

If there were no inflation or deflation in the real-world NHL this summer, we would have a cap ceiling of $58,000,000 and our cap floor would be set at $45,000,000, based on this formula.

Now that these figures are in place, we will await the next CBA to see what they throw at us next.

Is this going to be re-calculated at all in August after all the entry level players get their raises?

It will be re-calculated when the NHL tells us what their next cap will be, but entry level player raises will not affect this formula.

Currently, the cap figure set for next season will have a ceiling of $62,000,000 and a floor set at $49,000,000.

But as we all know, the next CBA could dramatically influence those numbers.

If the BoG succeeds in getting the NHLPA to agree to a 50% revenue share of the pie, we might be looking at approximately a ceiling of $53,000,000 and a floor of $40,000,000.

So be careful out there. :renske:

Wow that would be quite a dip. I would find it odd if the NHL had a salary cap of 70+ million and we are only 53 million.

Yeah, I'd like an explanation of that as well. I'm guessing in LS' possibility, the NHL's cap goes way down?

I don't think we need to worry about the players accepting a shift in revenue sharing from 57% to 50%. That would be a major loss of revenue for the players and we would have a long lockout before that would ever be accepted. If the league was financially strapped perhaps you could make a case for that kind of shift but revenues are good so I expect no change in the revenue split and thus our cap should be about $62 million next year. If the players do accept a shift it might be for something like a move from 57% sharing to 56% but even that would be hard to swallow for the players.

Correct. If the players agreed to a 50% revenue share, the NHL cap will drop dramatically as well.

50% would probably be a best case scenario for the league (worst case for the players). However, I don't foresee us going into a new CBA with anything less than 4% shaved off, personally.

With all of that said, if we do see a 7%, we might also see a rollback in individual wages. So really, all I am pointing out right now, is how tough it is to gauge things as we stand.

Are we changing the cap now or waiting for the CBA still? I assume we're still waiting.

The way I understand it is that when the NHL officially announces their cap next season, thats when ours will be.

So, post-CBA...

Given the news received yesterday, our cap ceiling will currently rise to a tune of $62M. The floor will be set at $49M.

Things will stay that way until the next CBA tells us that it will not.

Currently there are at least 9 teams under the Cap Floor and a couple more that don't have their team salaries posted.

It will be interesting to see what moves shake down for all these teams needing more $$$.
