$59 million in 2010-11?
 
Quote:

There appears to be some kind of confusion as to what the salary cap number will be in the NHL next season.

League sources say the number will be close to $57 million.

One team source called me this week to insist the number is closer to $59 million and that number will change how teams operate.

The team source said he had spoken to several GMs operating under the assumption of the $59-million cap.

But the league voice seems adamant that the number will be $57 million.

Which means if miscalculations are being made there may more players available than even Brian Burke imagined come the summer.

The number was $57.7 million. That was reported on the Hotstove two weeks ago.

$57 million is only a $200,000 increase. Canadian dollar low has been 93-94 cents and it reached parity last week.

I hope this gets cleared up soon. I'm sure the Rangers are eager to waste that extra $2 million.

More for Kovalchuk.

I thought the cap was set per team, based on team's revenue. Doesn't a fixed cap for the league put a team like New York at a serious disadvantage?

Emptyvoid 04-18-2010 09:43 AM

If we get an extra 2 million to work with, then Kovalchuk might just become a reality....

The cap is fixed, if it was set per team it would not be a cap

Having the cap based on revenue would put half the league out of business because teams wouldn't be able to pay their players. ex: PHX, TB, FLA, these teams don't have revenue anywhere near teams like the Rangers, a revenue based cap would destroy these organizations.

The cap is set league wide, if the team doesn't want to work their way up to the cap ceiling, that is another story.

And no, the disadvantage in a fixed cap system is having a GM who is seemingly unaware that we are in a cap era...

You can never really say, what with the potential for injuries or underperformance.

If things worked i'd say 4th in the East wouldnt be unrealistic with that squad.

yes indeed i did. Now, does anybody know if we've signed him for sure like in ink. Other than that report out of Toronto has anybody else confirmed?

nyr2417 04-18-2010 10:04 AM

I know I'm over the cap I did that to point out I was over by 1.4 and ironically some guy thats over 35 years old is making 1.4. do you guys remember his name?

azrok22 04-18-2010 10:09 AM

Ilya Kovalchuk, come on down.

My bad, I had zapped the Brashear part. Nothing sure for MZA, we'll have to wait until after the WC, but we can't say the Rangers are in a hurry atm to deny it if that's not true...

Even if you could somehow get rid of Brashear's cap hit, you'd have no spare players and no cap space to bring anyone up. Everyone playing 82 games?

nyr2417 04-18-2010 10:49 AM

we started the season with a 20 man roster last year, i could be wrong but i think we did. how much cap space did we have to begin last season

Panfork 04-18-2010 10:58 AM

The extra $2M will give Sather more reason to load Kovalchuk with a high salary. What a bad idea. :shakehead

I'd much rather sign two $4M-$5M players to make a really solid 1st and 2nd line, and guarantee all our good prospects can get paid when it's due than to give Kovalchuk a $9M salary for the next 10 years.

Two weeks ago

Quote:

The NHL salary cap will likely see a marginal increase of one per cent, pushing the maximum team payroll up by $900,000 to $57.7 million US for the 2010-11 season, Hockey Night in Canada analyst Glenn Healy said during Saturday's Hotstove segment.

"Mostly because of the strong Canadian dollar," Healy said, noting that the increase is still dependant on the accuracy of playoff revenue projections.

Seems to be some difference of opinion.

Estimates have the NHL salary cap, which increased by only $100,000 this season to $56.8 million, moving to about $58 million next season. All somewhat of a red herring, of course, given that the players again are expected to lose somewhere around 10 percent of their earnings via final escrow settlement. That makes the real cap number around $50 million.
