Skinner, Karlsson and now Hayes. Three guys that will not be signed to my fantasy team anytime soon, barring a stint as an IR replacement. Even then it's unlikely . Can't wait to see the next overpriced contract.

Duchene will probably get 10 at 7 years from somebody.

 NHL Gm's got it little tougher the us . Think they would be little more hard line

 

The NHL Cap this year will be 83M or under for 23 players

Capwise Cap is 96.5 or 98 for 21 players

 

Yes NHL gm's are going to have to learn to be more hardline.  One would hope anyway. The big difference of course is that there are 31 NHL teams versus 14 Capwise teams.  So there are twice the "elite" players per team to go around with Capwise.  Thus for sure the the cap difference is necessary.  GM's here at Capwise will have to be more careful than ever with the contracts they take on just the same.  there are some great players out there who are on contracts which may not be worth it.  (eg. Erik Karlsson maybe).  We do have one get out of jail free card in the JV overager slot.  But even that has to be dealt with before the end of any given season. 

I think these challenges are what makes Capwise so great though.

Enjoy NHL draft week everyone!

I think it's also worth noting that the salary cap was introduced at a time when the league wasn't really doing very well, and revenue was low.  Revenue has skyrocketed since then, so teams have more and more money to spend.  This is driving the cap up.  In a backwards sort of way, the GMs are forcing the league to raise the cap, rather than the cap forcing the GMs to limit salary numbers.  Eventually revenue will level off, and so will contracts... right?  maybe?

Is it time to consider a soft salary cap in the NHL? Similar to NBA or MLB?

 

Incentives teams to win and spend money, because they aren't limited like they are with a hard cap.

 

If Tampa wants to spend $7M over the cap, let them. Costs them a luxury tax to go over. Lower revenue teams split the luxury tax, giving them more money to spend on players.

Please don’t. I can’t stand that about the NBA and MLB. If anything, continue to raise the salary cap but maintain a hard cap.

The problem is the cap isn't going up. It's going to go up MAYBE 2 million this off-season. That's a huge problem. 

 

Teams like Arizona and Ottawa could use that extra cash from the bigger spenders. Teams like Vegas, Tampa, San Jose, have more incentive to spend money on players, and try and win.

Make it so the revenue shared from luxury tax HAS to be spent on players contracts. Raise the cap floor. 

 

Leagues like MLB and NBA thrive, and are bringing in record revenues, because they have stars playing on the same team, in bigger markets. 

 

And it won't take away from the parity of the league. Teams like Milwaukee, Portland,  and Denver are making playoff runs. Small markets. Same with baseball. Cleveland, Tampa, Milwaukee, etc.

True!

 

Both NBA and MLB have fairly strict luxury tax implications. So VERY few teams go over for consecutive seasons. 

 

Having a cap floor takes away from MLB's problem of teams not wanting to spend any money at all. 

 

And honestly, pro leagues want big market teams winning. To the public they may say they want parity, but they make SO MUCH more money when Boston plays LA, or New York plays Chicago.
