Salary Cap and Contracts Thread

Hi

Thought I would start a new salary cap thread as the old one is no longer applicable.

Some ideas about this year and next year. Elaborate.

YOUR 2013 NEW YORK RANGERS

FORWARDS (12)
Rick Nash ($7.800m) / Brad Richards ($6.667m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.275m)
Chris Kreider ($1.325m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Carl Hagelin ($0.875m) / Jason Arnott ($1.600m) / Taylor Pyatt ($1.550m)
Mike Rupp ($1.500m) / Brian Boyle ($1.700m) / Arron Asham ($1.000m) /one game supension/
Jeff Halpern ($0.700m)
TOTAL FWDS: $37.367M


DEFENSEMEN (8)
Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Dan Girardi ($3.325m)
Anton Stralman ($1.700m) / Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m)
Michael Del Zotto ($2.550m) / Steve Eminger ($0.750m)
Stu Bickel ($0.750m) / Matt Gilroy ($0.650m)
TOTAL DEFENSE: $15.000M

GOALTENDERS (2)
Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m)
Martin Biron ($1.300m)
TOTAL GOALIES: $8.175M

LTIR
Michael Sauer ($1.250m)
TOTAL ACTIVE PLAYER SALARIES (incl LTIR): $60.192M

Special onetime compliance buyout = LEX Sather insanity ($6,5M minus $900k counts against cap)
Wade Redden ($5.600m)

PREVIOUS BUYOUTS
Chris Drury ($1.667m)

TOTAL DEAD MONEY: $7.267M
------
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000
CAP PAYROLL: $69,708,334
TOTAL CAPHIT: $69.058.334
DEFERRABLE BONUSES: $1,250,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster + Sauer on LTIR): $2,391,666
LTIR (Sauer): $1,250,000

Michael del Zotto signed a 2 year (2nd) contract @ $2,55M

Expect minor movement here as well... Sather has over $5M in cap space (not sure if it is actually more as this is a 50 game schedule making these numbers prorated to an 82 game year) if del Zottos new deal is close to my number and
And the terms for the buyout of Wade Redden are also not clear as of now - maybe we can buy him out now already?

2013/2014 NEW YORK RANGERS

FORWARDS
Taylor Pyatt ($1.550m) / Brad Richards ($6.667m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Carl Hagelin ($2.000m) / Derek Stepan ($2.500m) / Rick Nash ($7.800m)
Chris Kreider ($1.325m) / J.T. Miller ($1.244m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.275m)
Darroll Powe ($1.067m) / Brian Boyle ($1.700m) / Arron Asham ($1.000m)
Micheal Haley ($0.600m)

DEFENSEMEN
Ryan McDonagh ($4.300m) / Dan Girardi ($3.325m)
Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Anton Stralman ($1.700m)
Michael Del Zotto ($2.550m) / Dylan McIlrath ($1.295m)
Stu Bickel ($0.750m)

GOALTENDERS
Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m)
Martin Biron ($1.300m)
------
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000
CAP PAYROLL: $64,772,500
BONUSES: $2,050,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $1,577,500

Some "fat" needs to be trimmed to get further under the cap if desired
Contracts like Pyatt, Boyle , Asham and Stralman would be the usual suspects here.
Guys like Lindberg, Fast, Hrivik, Thomas, Jean and Newbury would be potential replacement names from within the organization with a lower price tag. The newr additions of Mashinter, Palmieri and Ferriero too - if all are resigned.
Replacing/omitting someone like Haley or Biron might be options too, although the former creates no actual cap space

This is also presuming that the key RFA contract numbers wind up something like this:
  • MDZ (2013) $2,500m
  • McD (2014) $4,300m
  • Stepan (2014) $2,500m
  • Hagelin (2014) $2,000m

I know that some people, maybe entirely correctly, think that MDZ will get a longer deal with a substantially higher cap hit. Time will tell here. But only if you have a functioning crystal ball then you might be able to give more accurate figures here (and then there would be better ways of using that "ball"). They can of course be debated either way.

The only real roster changes in this above scenario from this year (2013) would be replacing our 2 UFAs in C Jeff Halpern with #1st round draft pick JT Miller and D Steve Eminger with #1st round draft pick Dylan McIlrath. This would however add to the cap hit. There will almost certainly be more/other changes nobody can foresee, and nothing guarantees that Miller and/or Big Mac are NHL ready next year.

Nonetheless - it is within the realm of possibility that we can keep the team intact (resigning all 4 key RFAs) and keeping Ghidorah if we get really creative and get rid of some minor roster fat. Is it likely? I do not know. Nobody does. But it certainly will be interesting to follow...

Regarding cap hits to our coming FAs - I did a small "study" here below to study how Sather has dealt with our Homegrown talent. Seems pretty clear, if you play well you triple your money on your second deal (most likely a 2 year deal) to do your "RFA #1contract diligence" and then you get paid with a longer contract.Only real exception here is Marc Staal that went straight to a bigger deal taking one year of UFA. Methinx (barring unforseen huge development somewhere) that Hagelin, Stepan and Kreider will follow the usual formula but Ryan McD will follow the Marc Staal and get paid/locked up right away in contract 2.

  • Eventually NO 7th rounder (conditionally traded to San Jose along with Tommy "horror-movie" Grant for Brandon Mashinter 2013 - condition being if he resigns with NYR then San Jose gets the pick)
