    As expected NHL salary cap at around $71M for next season.

    http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/nhl-salary-cap-projected-at-roughly-71m-next-season-1.2457590

    "When the playing resumed, fans returned and the money came pouring back. Revenues increased so much that next year's salary cap is expected to be roughly $71 million US, close to a 12-per cent increase from this season.

    That's an estimate, but it's the figure Bettman delivered to the board of governors Monday. 

    "I said to the board there shouldn't be any issue or consternation. If that's the cap level, it's because the revenues have gone up," Bettman said. "We try to give people a sense of where we think it'll come out, but it's subject to a whole host of issues — ultimately how much revenue is generated, where the Canadian dollar is, because we convert to U.S. dollars. If you want a rough, rough, rough ballpark, OK, but it could change."

    "That even goes for smaller-market teams. The cap floor this season is $44 million, and it's expected to be about $52 or $53 million next year."

     

    How many GMs will immediatly get themselves into trouble July 1st ?

    vanek and phaneuf are gonna get paiiiidddd. I wonder if Subban tries to go short term to break the bank. If he signs this off season he's getting 8-9. If he waits until UFA status he might get 11.

    Thornton and Marleau have perfect timing for their contracts.  Toews and Kane will be in their last year of their contracts.  The Bs will have most of their young defensemen to sign.  Should be interesting.

    This is no surprise.  I've been saying this since the Ducks re-signed Getzlaf and Perry for $17M combined - the GMs have known the Cap would be going up like this.  Chiarelli maxed out the carry over bonus cushion knowing that he'd have all that room and then some next year.

    All they had to do was look at their own revenues and talk to their colleagues to get at least a reasonably reliable indication.

    Someone is going to give Subban an offer sheet if possible.  It's going to be a monster.

    It'll be the subsequent raising of the salary floor that will prove interesting here. A buncha teams, already struggling, are going to find the 50-something million salary floor fairly onerous to meet.

    Also interesting that 70 million-ish was around-about what a lot of the big-spenders were spending before the Salary Cap system was put in place.

    And I read that the Sportsnet TV contract won't be factored till the cap the year after. How about Michalek or Stastny in a Bruins uniform ?

    Books really, really going to hate this place come March LoL

    dregger has been tweeting about that. said that around 5 NHL teams will qualify for 45 million in revenue sharing stuff. 7 million shouldn't be a problem.

    Big market teams - "YAY!"

    Small market teams, more specifically ones in the "up-and-coming" group - "You gotta be s***ting me"

    Without looking at the cap for teams I would say so.

    I'd say that sounds right, and I wouldnt compare salaries to to other players, in this instance it has more to do with timing. Becoming a free-agent I think how much you get depends on so much more than how good or valuable you are. Other factors line cap projections, quality of other free-agents etc..

    it would be 81 without the lockout. That's 300 million the NHL owners potentially save next year due to the lockout. I bet they don't think it was a waste.

    The 2015-2016 cap will probably end up being $81M.

    How much revenue did the owners lose during the lockout ?

    Just the 2012 pre-seaon and the 1st 25 games $240M was lost.

    Why do you think it would have been 81.  They settled the split quickly.

    and by that time the owners will have probably saved 600-700 million. it was definitely worth it for them. if they had just extended the CBA at 57% for 8 years and gained those 25 games and a pre season, they would have lost billions.

    That's just the first 25 games and the pre-season. Then you have November, December and January not included. The cap will be at $81M the season after next, I just don't see how that is productive for the game and their coffers.

    SanDog, if people are going to suggest bringing in Michalek and Stastny, two overpriced underperforming players with big names, I can start hating now.

    The actual number of the cap doesn't matter - the cap would always be 7% of eligible revenues higher under the pre-lockout deal than the current deal.  Basically, take the current cap amount, divide by .5, then mulitply by .57.  If the revenues justify $71M under this deal, they would have sent the cap to $80.9M under the old deal.  If the cap rises to $81M under this deal, it would be $92.3 under the old deal.  Every year of a $10M gap = $300M league wide.  So after two years, the owners have at least recouped the money they lost to the lockout by not paying it to the players.

    Factor it at $300M/yr over ten years of the deal and yeah, the lockout looks really smart to me.

    "So after two years, the owners have at least recouped the money they lost to the lockout by not paying it to the players."

     

    And then factor in the Sportsnet TV revenue in the future that is a whopper. I should have rephrased "Why wait till late winter and lose that money from the fall, November and December" to accept.

    Wonder if that TV deal was already in the works last year and the owners knew. For the posters that complain about Bettman, he comes cheap compared to the other Commissioners.

    Many people think it was about the players making too much money.  They don't realize it was about the players making too much OF the money.

    Owners are thrilled to be able to pay guys $10M/yr.  It just means they're making that much more overall.
