The players are seeking a 66 million cap for next season. The NHL has not budged from 60 million. Still remains an issue.
So $67M goes down by $1M. Or 2 - depending on who you prefer to believe.

$64M sounds about right...

One of the many remaining issues between the two sides starts with the proposed $60 million salary cap ceiling in the second year of the CBA. The players are looking to raise that number up a bit in the range of $64-$65 million. It was also believed that the union was seeking a cap on escrow, but that doesn't appear to the case anymore as it's not been formally proposed. Finally you have the player pensions, which were said to be agreed upon in the past, but with some recent tweaks by the NHL that is no longer the case.
Not much left to squabble about it seems
  • Cap next year
  • Pensions

Get er done & drop the bloody puck
