With player salaries at $1.8B would make the difference $150M.
That would mean the NHL absorbs the entire amount???
Yes, but you can't just subtract here because there are teams with open cap space. Cutting $150M would BARELY get the teams under 50/50. Easier to devalue by 13%, then you maintain your cap space: 7%/57%.
Fehr's number is $231M and mine is $229M (based on capgeek, I have a higher number for year two).
