One more question, and this appears to be the appropriate thread. Does the Jets' payment of part of Mark Scheifele's salary count against their cap hit?
  • His entry level salary is $1,594,167 for an 82-game season
  • He was only suited up for 3 games, before being sent back down to the juniors
  • However, he was on the roster for the team's first 10 games
  • He would draw $1,594,167 * 10 / 82 = $194,410.61. Not very many 19-year-olds see that type of money. And people were whing about "how badly the Jets were treating him".
To get back to the original question, would that count against the Jets' cap hit, and the NHLPA's percantage of HRR? I feel that cap hit should always equal salary paid, but there seem to be so many loopholes, that I take nothing for granted.
