Expected to go up 3.5M$-4.5M$

Shamelessly taken from the Ruins' board

Quote:
If the additional television revenue is pumped directly into the salary-cap number, the salary cap is expected to rise by at least $3.5-$4.5 million, since the new television deal should increase by at least $100 million a season.

We'd have like 32 million in cap space next season, we can do anything we want lol. That's crazy amounts of money. It would be as though we got rid of Spacek's or Andrei's salary this year.

Next year will be super interesting for the habs that's for sure.

This is great since we have most of our core locked down for a few years. Such a big increase in cap might cause a slight increase of salaries.

Anyways this easily covers Markov and AK46's contract raises and with Hammer leaving we can sign or trade for a good player. Sadly the best defensemen available appears to be our own Markov...

What about a 8m offer sheet for Doughty? Albeit RFA Jack Johnson would be a more realistic target. He plays right or left and would be an excellent partner for Markov as he's fast skating, extremely robust and has decent/good puck skills.

Yeah and if we dumped Spacek... we could build an unstoppable force and imo UFA's will definitely want to sign here. It largely depends on how Price plays imo. Players want to sign with contenders except for the really greedy ones but even the ones who care more about money still would rather play for a good team obviously.

This summer we're a few solid moves away from being a huge contender imo.

I reaaally wish we could unload Gomez's contract and sign Brad Richards.

Pitkanen would be an awesome addition however, especially since he's pretty young.

yup the pieces are definitely there. Especially that we have cheap depth in Hamilton with Pacioretty, White and potentially Palushaj for our bottom 6. we're definitely heading in the right direction.

I will beleive this when I see it
so many struggling franchises in the NHL this year needing a boost from the NHL...
So I just can't see league wide revenues growing by that much TV deal or not

Since Gomez's contract is front loaded, maybe just maybe another team will want him at 7.5, 5.5 then 4.5 for the next 3 years. If the cap goes up, the floor goes up as well. Maybe some team struggling to make it will want him.

Then we sign Richards. Is there a website with a list of all the availible UFAs next year?

You talking about Spacek? because even in the AHL, his full salary will count on the cap. 35 years old rule.

35 year-old rule only matters if he retires. If a player signed to a contract when he'S 35, or older and retires, you still get dinged for all of it.

Whether Spacek is 35, or 25 and got sent down, he'd stll get paid in full.

yeah he will be paid,
but what he said is that his salary cap count against the cap even if he plays in AHL:

As of trade deadline next year, his contract is moveable. I highly doubt it before that though.
