I notice you didn't mention that the players used the 5% inflator. Without that the cap would have fallen the $2M or so that it was projected to fall.

Next year the fall will be more pronounced.

It's the 2010-2011 season where some managers expect the cap to possibly go down. If you watch the interviews with Solomon from the State of the Franchise meeting (posted on the LA Kings official site), you'll see where he talks about the cap possibly coming down in 2010.

Yeah, I know. I'm actually a little surprised that they did so this year, with so many players being on long term deals. The inflator helps the guys looking for a new contract and hurts the players with existing contracts.

True....but if the NHLPA continues to use the 5% inflator....as they have done every year since the salary cap was introduced....then the drop will not be nearly as dramatic as people (including Solomon) believe.

I guess there is no operating in an era of a falling salary cap if it's not falling.
