Warhippy Posted July 17, 2013 Share Posted July 17, 2013 http://www.capgeek.com/ This is the current cap situation for the entire NHL as it stands, including recent signings and still available UFA's. I find it interesting to see what is going on financially in the NHL in regards to this as the owners that fought the hardest for specific provisions are the ones that spend to or over the cap the fastest. I am posting this and hoping to generate a valid and genuine discussion as to what people think is going to happen. As per most analysts and experts GM's league wide are fielding calls daily looking to move gain or shed cap depending on their teams situation. There are a number of players being discussed on forums and in offices all over North America that could move, still be bought out in the next calendar year or be sunk into LTIR or the minors depending on their productivity regardless of their cap hit. One of the things I find most interesting is the disparity amongst certain teams in regards to their cap situation, recent buyouts and their finish to the season as well as what some are projecting their finishes to be next season. Namely Philli and Winnipeg. These are two teams literally at opposite ends of the spectrum cap wise, yet miles apart in terms of where they finished but very comparable in terms of prospects and projected finishes. So I just really wanted to post this and see how people felt about the first "season" as it was after the lockout and the new cap. How do you all feel about it? Who do you think will add or subtract? How on earth does Holmgren use his two buyouts and manage to be $2 million over the cap? how are the Jets taking 5 players to arbitration with almost $20 million in cap space. Your thoughts????
