The Vancouver Canucks 2004-2005 Case Study
Using the ‘GoCoyotes’ Framework
Drafted/Developmental player exception… 8 years Franchise player exception… $31 million cap…

Assumptions and sources: I assume that I am applying the framework properly ... I got these 2004/2005 salaries from the HF Canucks board (every team needs a Mizral)… I got the Seasons with Canucks from Yahoo Sports (eyeballing the seasons with the Canucks) - I included the season that the player was traded to the Canucks, or the season that the drafted player played his first game - as this is when they began their tenure with the Canucks, even though it wasn't necessarily a full season)… I counted total seasons with the Canucks (not consecutive seasons) - i.e. in the case of Linden and May they were with the Canucks, then traded, and then traded back... I assume that the numbers (and my math) are correct...

Total Payroll of the 2004-05 Contracts: $43,394,783

Cap Exceptions: $20,961,450

Payroll Counted Towards Cap: $22,433,333

Room for additional non-exempt salaries (before Cap Penalties): $8,566,667

IMO, try to acquire a very good, established, 2nd line RW for the Sedins for around $3.5 -$ 4 million – and we should be pretty good to go (for a total payroll of between $46,894,783 - $47,394,893)… While still being approx. $4,500,000 under the cap (in case we need to add another body or two at the trade deadline to try and solidify a solid playoff run)…

And by being under the cap, we get rewarded with the luxury tax revenue sharing (assuming that the framework includes this component)… Therefore, we have a pretty big incentive to stay under the cap – even if we can afford to go over…

It would be interesting to see case studies done for other teams…
