Cap issue will not delay UFA signings
May 26, 2006

The NHL feels confident it can determine what the ceiling of the hard cap will be next season without delaying the start of this summer's free-agent period.

Sources tell Sportsnet the league intends to observe the traditional date of July 1 to mark the commencement of unrestricted free-agent negotiations.

The NHL and the NHLPA were skeptical of being able to wade through the sea of revenue assessment in time to avoid pushing back the process.

While the hard cap figure for 2006-2007 is based on revenue streams that are still being generated, the sense is next year's cap will come in at aproximately $43.5 million, which translates into a $4 million dollar bump per team.
