NFL minimum also increased in the NFL. Players took a cut but the bottom teams have to spend more on payroll. Not in the NHL where the floor of $43.9M will be less than the 11-12 floor with at least $50M more in revenue sharing. The Rangers will paying $24M in revenue sharing and they can't even get a compliance buyout. The Rangers have no dersire to play Redden so they will carry $6.5M of dead cap space. Good job by the NHL. Reds will be stuck in the AHL. At least he got paid but his career is essentially over.
Good point. I'm not sure I've even heard about anything the nhlpa wants in return. Their only demands is limits on how much they give
