There is no way the cap will be $60 in 2014-15. Revenue will go up and with it, the cap. Revenue would have to go up only 14% over two years to get back to a $70 cap. That is reasonable progress. Even a small revenue increase will bump things to $65 in two years.

Slats shouldnt make crazy moves. We are ok this year. If the cap is $65 next year, we will be ok then, too. And lets see what happens in 2014-15. If the cap is up to $70+, we will be able to kep all the long term assests and probably re-sign Gabby or acquire his replacement.

So long as the cap is over $66 in two years, we are ok.

Rick Nash ($7.800m) / Brad Richards ($6.667m) / Ryan Callahan ($5.000m)
