Salary Cap decrease in 12-13?

39 posts in this topic

Darren Dreger reports that the NHL salary cap could go down to $58 million for this season and then will steadly increase until it reaches $71 million in 2017. This is what is being proposed.

How can the NHL suddenly cut the salary cap? I honestly dont get it since there are a bunch of teams in the NHL (including our Canucks) who are over $58 million. What will they have to do to get under the cap? And most importantly what does this mean for the Canucks?

It doesn't mean anything. It's all relative.

If player salaries go down with the cap then we'll have just as much room.

I heard no salary roll-back in the latests proposition by the owners. The salary cap would be reduced, so teams would have to find a way to comply. That being said, I doubt the players take this deal. When all said and done I bet the salary cap for 2012/2013 will be in the $62-$65 Million range.

What it will mean...certain contracts will have to be bought out or dumped.....Luongo will be off the books (his return will not be as much as hoped for-prospects/picks) Other contracts like Ballards and Malhotra will have to be moved or bought out.

No way they would reduce the cap without reducing players salaries. That would create such a mess.

It would force teams like the Canucks to trade away players for next to nothing to teams that need to reach the cap floor.

Maybe they might roll back the cap hit but not salaries. So contracts already signed would not be affected. Or there might be a buy out of 2 or 3 contracts per team.

Its all guess work right now. They are still fighting over what is HRR and who gets what % of it.

Luongo for a 7th. We need more cap space.

Ballard for future considerations.

It must be done. We lose all bargaining power and have to deal for peanuts to comply with cap.

100 trades in a month.

If there is no salary roll back than the Weber, Suter, Parise deals will be catastrophic. Maybe that is what the owners deserve but still. We would have to dump Luongo, Ballard, Booth, Raymond and Malhotra to get under the cap comfortably. We would not be in the worst position though.

What the F is your problem Bettman? Why can't you keep the same deal that you got right now? You cancelled a whole F'en year to get this current deal, and now it's still not good enough? The cap is going up every year 'cause league revenues are going up, which means the NHL is making money, so what's your problem?

Us fans are sick and tired of your BS. We just want a damn season! Players salaries are not the issue, YOU are the problem! The NHL is losing in places where you decided put teams where people don't even know what a puck is! Your decisions to put teams in non-traditional markets is what's hurting the league and those markets are dragging down the high revenue teams with them. Move PHX, CBJ, FLA, NYI to places where people want hockey and you're laughing. Don't try to make the players pay for your mistakes!

you know what Gary? frack u man! Just leave, please leave the NHL, GTFO!

Current salary for players gets turned into a % of the teams total cap.

Decrease in salary cap would just cause the players salary to decrease by the same %

There are no salary roll backs...the excess money over the cap will be put into escrow (i.e. a third party holding company)...untouchable by the offending party until they are compliant.
