Trade deadline is reputed to be on April 5, 2013. 27 days would then remain of the season.
Prorated amount at deadline (on the annual cap hit) is therefore a whopping 3,85 times.Very interesting as this will mean everyone will basically be able to afford just about anyone at the deadline as a rental... Getting under next years cap will of course make pending UFAs the "attractive" bounty, longer contracts will be much harder to move imo.
Could mean a very busy deadline - very much depending on how many teams "are in it" on April 4. Or could mean absolutely nothing... Time will tell.
John Shannon tweeted its a shorter season.

NHL Regular Season to start Jan 19, ends April 27. SC Playoffs start May 1, could go as long as June 28

Its 99 days. $2.67M.
