The salary cap will be on the agenda at the BOG meeting today

Quote:
"There were very preliminary projections, league revenue forecast information," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said. "You build in a whole bunch of assumptions and variables and you try to give them a sense of where that might be."

A lot can change between now and next season, though, Daly cautioned.

"It depends on the variables," Daly added. "We use as much information as we have and we try and make reasonable projections. There are things like, whether the union wants to invoke a five-percent inflator, that comes into play; the value of the Canadian currency and where that goes for the rest of the year comes into play. Obviously the accuracy of the projections themselves -- what the clubs are experiencing in their revenues, what we're experiencing in our revenues -- they all come into play. I think for the most part, based on the information we have, they've been reasonable projections."

The NHL's 5% decision will determine whether or not the cap increases by as much as $3 million.

Say the PA votes to exercise their 5%,$62.4 million upper limit. $68.64 million summer cap. Redden's $6.5 million comes back on the books. All one way contracts count. Rangers summer cap is $62.14 million. $260,000 less than the upper limit.

$41.85 million in commitments.
