From the main board
Some detals of the new CBA
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%
No cap on escrow
7 year max. 8 years if re-signing with same team.
35% variance year-over-year
50% variance between final year and highest year of contract
Teams may not walk away from award unless award is at least 3.5M (Clarke MacArthur Clause)
$200M with $60M "Industry Growth Fund"
2 per team, that can be used over the next two off-seasons, counting against players' share of HRR
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."
All 14 non-playoff teams will have a shot at the #1 overall pick
10 year CBA with mutual opt-out clauses after 8 years
Start of free agency period remains July 1
No decision regarding realignment has yet to be made for this or next season
Olympic participation will be decided by joint NHL-NHLPA committee on a future date outside of CBA framework
Minimum player salary is 525k (2011 rate) but will grow to 750k by Y9 and Y10 of new CBA
