2014-2015 Salary Cap

Has anyone heard any projections for the following year salary cap. With it dropping next season, what will it go back up to?

Will teams only need to weather the storm for one year before they can go back to their high spending ways?

Next season's FA crop is way more high profile than this year's and teams could have alot more cash to throw around.

See ya

With all those outdoor games planned next year I can't see the cap going any lower.

I guess I should have look at Mirtle's numbers first.

He projects next couple years to stay at $64.3 million.

See ya

Due to inflation, the salary cap will constantly rise as long as:

1: The eceonomy doesn't collapse.
2: The NHL doesn't loose his influence in the American market.

I think it'll be back up to 70 mill by the time the 15-16 season rolls around. Yes, they cut back the cap for 2 years, but you need to consider the fact that the NHL isn't losing revenue by cutting the cap back. When you think of inflation and how marketable this playoffs has been it's win/win for the players and the NHL when it comes to the salary cap for the 14-15 season.

With the Canadian dollar being allowed to drop like a stone by the Canadian central bank policy I wonder just how much the cap really will increase in future years. A disproportionate amount of NHL revenues come from Canada and I don't think what appears to be a return of the Canadian peso is a good thing for the NHL.

Bump. When does the NHL formally announce what their salary cap will be for 2014-2015?

2014-15 cap was announced to be $69 million, $51 million floor. http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=724192. Will cause problems for some teams, such as PHI and BOS.

Two teams with some players we could really use.

Time to start poaching again, MacT. The only problem here, is the 2015 draft. That's all we have left to offer, besides the kids who we're not trading. I'd rather hold onto some of those draft picks TBH.

The Canadian dollar's uncertainty has a big role in the salary cap.

Bettman was the one who implemented a system to help Canadian teams in the event that the Canadian dollar goes into the tank.

However, this was when the $1 CAD can only by $0.63 US
