Under the new CBA, teams can retain salary/cap hit in a trade. Conditions to follow. #NHL
Quote:
Teams can retain salary/cap hit for up to three SPCs, to a maximum aggregate cap hit of 15 per cent of upper limit. #NHL
Quote:
Up to 50% of SPC can be retained in trade. An SPC can be traded twice with salary/cap hit retained. #NHL
Quote:
That’s about $9.6M in cap money teams can retain in trades, under a $64.3M upper limit. #NHL


Figured we could use a separate thread talking about how this effect trades for all teams moving on, seems like pretty huge news.

it'll be less than that in year 1 though, because the actual upper limit this season is 60M, so just 9M across 3 players is immediately available.

that 50% thing will still hurt guys like redden/gomez/etc though. They'll have to wait until the summer for amnesty buyouts.

9m is a pretty significant amount if you think about it, could really open up a ton of trade options for teams who are close to the cap or have a ton of cap.
