Setting the cap

Hi folks,

it might have been (probably) discussed here already but havent been around for a while.

How exactly is the cap determined? I mean, the NHL calculated with an 1.8 billion revenue for this year. Devided by 30 and then 54% of it, makes $32.4m average payroll per team while the cap is at $39m. Most of the teams are above the average $32.4m so the $39m doesnt make much sense, even with 10-15% escrow.

Is there any sort of formular how the cap is set? Like 54% (or 55 or 56 or 57 pending on the revenue) of the the revenue devided by 30 and then adding x% or whatever? Its a question that bugs me since the CBA was signed.
