Latest news on CBA talks

It looks like the last remaining issue is to decide what to do with last season contracts.

Interesting read - Ottawa Sun

Other rumors from the article:
  • Cap around $34-$36 million
  • floor of $22 million
  • minimum annual salary raised to $400,000 for new contracts
  • Draft in NY on August 6th and not in Ottawa

Good find Albi..

I think we all figured that eventually last season's contracts would become a focal point of the discussions...

It will be interesting to see how they work it out. I'm interested to see what they'll do with all the players that were on entry-level contracts and assigned to AHL and ECHL affiliates prior to the NHL suspending contracts. Do they tack-on another year to the entry-level contracts with a 24% roll-back?

If thats the cap, do you think the Kings will spend that much or do you think they spend around 30 million or less? From past experiences, I feel that the Kings will be around 27-28 million and Lieweekly will still scream about New York and their practices.

That would piss me off. Why would Bettman reward a franchise such as NYR when they were the ones responsible for most of this mess.

Atleast throw it towards LA.

One thing is for sure, Crosby needs to be in a major market. Which one, who knows?

Everyone that I have talked to says Crosby will go to the rangers or blackhawks.

The Blackhawks are one of the worst run franchises. It wouldn't surprise me, Bettman is in Wirtz's pocket.

Everyone I have talked said he will go to one of 30 teams. It just depends on who your favorite is.

Crosby to the Rags.

I did not read the article yet but I hear it is to be just a telephone in draft.

Do you guys think it would be better for the Kings if the contracts were honored? Pittsburgh would still pay most of Straka's salaries and plus there would be a 24% rollback, so that's one reason why I want the contracts to be honored. But I'm not sure.

Assuming it's either a 24% rollback OR not counting 04-05 (not both), then financially the Kings would be better off if 04-05 doesn't count and they get the 24% rollback. They'd only have Straka, Quintal, Robitaille and Cechmanek under contract but they would save a little over $8 mil in salaries. Cechmanek would cost about $1.8 mil to buy out so that's a pretty good deal IMO. And they don't have too many guys under long-term contracts so not having 04-05 count really doesn't hurt them.

Also, think about how it DOES hurt other teams...like the Stars. They are screwed with Guerin. It'll cost them a FORTUNE to buy him out whether 04-05 counts or not, but if it doesn't count it'll cost them $4.5 mil MORE to buy him out. Same with the Blues and Tkachuk (although the NHLPA's proposal says he'll make "only" $5 mil in 06-07)...it'll cost them an extra $4.5 mil to buy him out. The list goes on and on and on. IMO, for that reason alone (the damage it does to other teams, the Kings should push for 04-05 NOT to count. In fact, they should be on the NHLPA's side pushing for the 24% rollback and to have 04-05 NOT count.
