7 of the 30 teams are now Canadian...and that number may rise...the 7 Canadian teams represent well over 30% of league revenues....and a major decrease in the Canadian dollar will also decrease league revenues which will lower the salary cap. Chipman mentioned in an interview that the Canadian teams are hedged so the losses from a large decrease in the dollar will be less than people expect. Also remember that a good chunk of revenue that Canadian teams receive is already in US dollars from merchandise and national tv deals which are evenly distributed between all teams.
