Quick rookie salary question.

Will delete once answered.

Right now we sit at $36,911,433, with Colaiacovo, in my opinion, being the only rookie lock for making the team. He'll make $859,000, bringing us up to $37,770,433.

Now let's say Tucker was injured, and we brought in Steen. Is his salary then added to that 37 million total? Or is the salary not counted, because he's replacing a player who's being payed more than him?

I believe Steen's contract would be paid by the Marlies. I'm not absolutley sure of this though.

In the event of injuries they can call up a player and it will not count against the salary cap unless he a) makes more than the player he's replacing or b) gets kept on the roster after the injured player returns.

Excellent, thank you. What if they're a healthy scratch?

And, let's say Steen ($720,000) replaces an injured Wilm ($450,000) for a game. Is $270,000 added to the salary cap?

No, just the formulated $720,000/82 - $450,000/82 ($3,292.68).

At least, I'm near sure.

Healthy scratches apply fully to the cap.

Well, normally the replacement for a healthy scratch is someone already on the 23 man roster, therefore already applied towards the cap. But if for some reason they're carrying a 22 man roster or less and call up someone to replace a press box invitee, then his full portion of salary earned gets applied towards the cap.

I heard an interview on the fan with, I cant remember the GM, but he said that any injury callup WILL count against the cap, Unless, the injured player meets an injury exception, which is 25 days out of the lineup, and 10 games i think he said ...and both conditions need to be met ...and also something about any/all callups count against the cap too, but, i presume only for the time that they are with the team ...he used an example of you play on monday and friday, so you'd callup the player from the minors for mondays's game, and send him down again after the game and callup again on friday, to minimize the expense towards the cap.

...sorry for the vagueness in my memory of the interview.

You're right mydnyte:

Looking it up, here's the paragraph that says roughly that,

Quote:
The payroll range in Year One (2005-06) of the CBA will be $21.5 million (U.S.) at the lower limit and $39 million (U.S.) at the upper limit. A Club's payroll will include all salaries, signing bonuses and performance bonuses paid to players. Except in the case of bona fide long-term injury (injuries that sideline a player for a minimum of 24 days and 10 games) to one or more of a club's players, Club payrolls will never be permitted to be below the minimum or in excess of the maximum. Clubs at or near the upper limit that have players who incur a bona fide long-term injury will be entitled to replace up to the full value of the injured player's NHL salary (even if such salary would result in the club's team salary exceeding the upper limit). The "replacement salary" will not count against the club's upper limit but will count against the League-wide players' share. Upon return of the injured player, the team must come into immediate compliance with the requirements of the payroll range.
