Hockey Related Revenue (which would only include the current rights fee from Versus, plus the revenue-sharing agreement with NBC). When a new television rights deal is reached next year, it will affect the 2012-13 salary cap (unless some upfront money from the new rights holder is included in 2010-11 Hockey Related Revenue).
Second, when the new television rights deal does kick into the salary cap calculation, that revenue would not be "pumped directly into the salary-cap number," which is how he came up with his number -- $100 million divided by 30 clubs. The players' share of Hockey Related Revenue is 57%. Therefore, if the new television rights deal brings in an additional $100 million relative to the current deal, that's an additional $57 million into the pot. And that would be assuming the players' share and the salary cap calculation don't change under the current CBA.
To be safe, say a modestly improved TV deal could add a million or two to the cap.
Quick everyone on Earth go buy a 1 dollar NHL bobble head. The 6 billion plus in sales will make the cap skyrocket!!!!!!
