The cap is going to need to jump significantly. And soon, else, the league will be filled with either haves or have-nots when it comes to salaries, with not much room in between. The NHLPA should be very concerned as the rich players get richer and the rest are left to fend for leftover scraps. I can foresee players in the $3 -5 M salary range (especially those in their 30’s) settling for far less just to stay in the league. Some of the top loaded teams (like Hawks) will be forced to fill their bottom six (along with their 5th -7th dmen) with entry level like contracts to be in compliance. Am I wrong? Am I missing something?
No, but I think the cap (hope) is going to skyrocket after next season. If not, like you said, the league will be a mess.
