The NHL salary cap will rise to $50.3 million per team next season

NEW YORK -- The NHL salary cap will rise to $50.3 million per team next season, an increase of $6.3 million from last season, the league and players' union announced Friday.


Teams don't have to spend up to the ceiling, but each club's payroll must be at least $34.3 million. The range from top to bottom is always $16 million.

The first season following the lost year featured a cap of $39 million, and that figure rose to $44 million for the 2005-06 season.

according to NHL numbers
http://www.nhlnumbers.com/nyr.html

player - cap hit
JJ - 4.940
Straka - 3.1
Cullen - 2.875
Betts - 0.525
Callahan - 0.475
Shanahan - 4.0 (???)
Hossa - RFA (???)
Prucha - RFA (???)
Avery - RFA (???)
Hollweg - (???)
Orr - (???)

Malik - 2.5
Rosival - 2.1
Kaspar - 2.989
Tyutin - 0.988
Mara - 3.0
Pock - (???)
Girardi - 0.550
Staal - (most likely) 0.850

Lundqvist - 1.880
Valley - 0.178 (huh?)

I don't have numbers for some of the players so I'll estimate that the Rangers are at about $38.3 million in cap usage. 50.3-38.3 = 12 million to spend. probably want to subtract 2-3 for trade flexibility. leaves around 10 to spend.

These aren't meant to be lines, but rather to show holes.
Hossa-???-Jagr
Avery-???-Shanahan
Straka-Cullen-Callahan
Prucha-Betts-Hollweg
Orr

Rosival-Malik
Mara-Staal
Girardi-Tyutin
Pock

Lundqvist
Valley

fyi. Montoya adds 1.8 to the picture if he plays with the big club. I can see why Sather would want to trade him now. $10M does not seem like enough to sign both Gomez/Drury AND Nylander. No wonder those talks have dragged out. I wonder if you see the rangers make some moves to clear cap space.
