certainly does change things for a lot of teams, including the Habs. I still can't for the life of me understand how the cap keeps going up every year. I guess Leonsis had it right when he said that the NHL is in a good financial position, or at least better than the NBA.

What about no cap?

We could sign Marleau, Kovalchuk, Plekanec, Volchenkov, Gonchar!!

Cap will likely go down in next few years though because canadian dollar is expected to fall I believe and most of these raises in cap are due to strong dollar.

I'm really happy if it is. Imagine a boom like 2-2.5 mil how helpful it would be?

Or be able to trade him to a team that is interested in him and now would have the cap space to add him

Good news for us. It'll help us this summer when it comes to re-signing key players.

The extra $2 million should definitely cover Pleks' raise.

Metro and Mara off the books should at least be enough to cover Halak's raise.

Moore can be resigned for more or less what he's already making.

MAB off the books should cover any necessary raises to other RFAs like Laps, Pouliot, and Pyatt.


What the extra 2 million means is that we don't need to lose anybody now. We still can't go free agent hunting without getting rid of some additional salaries, but there should be no problem keeping Pleks, Halak, and Moore now.

With AKost, SKost, and Price as trading commodities that we can take back equivalent contracts for, we should be able to make a key improvement or two via trade. And keep Hammer.

Great news! This makes Gauthier's job much simpler. Let's hope he's up to it though.

Metro and MAB dont make enought money to create any cap space.

So the Habs alarmists were wrong yet again, this time about the cap increase...what a surprise.

Ozymandias has been saying this the entire year, it was quite obvious the cap was going to increase.

I wouldn't bet on it
He's come this far, i just don't see him signing pre-July 1
He will test the market
UFA at 27 only comes around once, he'd be crazy not to
