The $58M Cap – Who’s In Trouble


The NHL sent the NHLPA a new economic proposal yesterday in the course of CBA negotiations. In it, they suggested a $58M salary cap this year for a bit more than 51% of league revenues.

The issue is teams have been planning and signing players on the basis of a projected 2012-13 cap of $70M+.

So who are the 16 teams in trouble and by how much if the $58M salary cap goes into affect?

Teams In A Quandry

In order from most money issues to closest to, but above,
the $58M numbers (all figures do not include bonuses and their potential impact):

BOS $10,867,976

MIN $10,848,867

VAN $9,768,333

CGY $8,668,332

PHI $8,643,373

SJS $7,241,667

MTL $5,897,976

TBL $5,246,916

EDM $4,933,333

TOR $4,873,333

CHI $4,445,128

LAK $4,320,227

BUF $3,542,023

PIT $2,263,333

WSH $1,627,905

NYR $508,334

What will be key without some kind of ‘Grandfather Tax’ is who GM’s cut in order to right-size. This is where GM’s are going to earn their money this summer.

Later, we will discuss potential cuts to get down to a new cap ceiling.
