The players share of revenue is determined by the total NHL revenue #.

[EDIT: We've been at the 57% level for at least the last couple of seasons.]

The salary cap is currently $59.4m. A 14% increase would bring the cap to $64.1m, or an increase of $4.7m.EDIT: Fixed math to account for 57%.
That's a big jump.

If the Cap ceiling increases, what about the cap floor? Would that increase by 4.7 million also? If so, chances of moving Chrius Drury wouls be greater with the larger cap hit and dollar amount of his contract.
