What we know so far:

Salary Cap
Y1: 60M ceiling but teams can spend up to $70.2M, 44M floor
Y2: 64.3M ceiling, 44M floor
Y3 - Y10: The higher of 64.3M or 50% (according to Bruce Arthur)
No cap on escrow

7 year max or 8 years if re-signing with same team.
35% variance year-over-year
50% variance between highest and lowest year of contract

Teams may not walk away from award unless award is at least 3.5M (Clarke MacArthur Clause)

Revenue Sharing
$200M with $60M "growth fund"

Compliance Buyouts
2 per team next season, counting against players' share of HRR

Supplemental Discipline
Brendan Shanahan is still the first judge; the appeals will still go through Commissioner Gary Bettman; but for suspensions of six or more games, a "neutral third party will decide if necessary."

10 year CBA with mutual opt-out clauses after 8 years
Realignment pushed down the road, no decision made for this or next season
Olympic participation will be settled on a future date outside of CBA framework
Other items to clarify:

- Are AHL contracts over 100k$ included in CAP (and player share)?
- Total value of 'make whole' ?
- Minimum salary evolution over the 10 years?
- Trading of CAP space (Burke idea?)
- One way, or two way waivers ?
