I don't know when its officially decided but it sounds like its waiting on the players association decision if that helps:

May 29, Los Angeles Times: Commissioner Gary Bettman said Friday that NHL revenues are projected to rise about 4% this season and hit record levels on the heels of a rise in sponsorships and in TV ratings, and that the salary cap, which had been expected to drop in a wobbly economy, could grow by $2 million if the players' association exercises its right to approve a 5% escalator clause. The cap was $56.8 million this season.

Bettman can thank the Canadian dollar for that.

This would be awesome. If it does we could potentially have 10 million to play with for the off season, depending on how much Lidstrom takes. PLEASE Holland bring in (a) new top 6 player(s).

Franzen (3.954) - Datsyuk (6.700m) - Marleau (4.750m)
Filppula (3.000m) - Zetterberg (6.083m) - Plekanec (3.500m)
Hudler (2.875m) - Helm (.900m) - Cleary (2.800m)
Abdelkader (.850m) - UFA (~1.50m) - Eaves (.850m)
Draper (1.583m)

Lidstrom (3.954m) - Rafalski (6.00m)
Stuart (3.750m) - Kronwall (3.000m)
Ericsson (.900m) - UFA (~1.50m)

Forwards: 39.345m
Defense: 19.104m
Total: 58.449m
Cap: 58.800m
Space: 0.351m


Cup please.

This team's success is pretty much hinged on how much Lidstrom wants. If he wants 6 million, then we'll be a good team. If he takes 4 million, we'll be a great team.

Maybe they'll be able to get Colby Armstrong after all.

Ritola and Abdelkader play really well together. Mostly because they've been like best friends for a while now.

The options for free agency aren't too appealing to me this year.

Even though it's a more difficult process I'd rather they explore through trade for perhaps someone stuck a bad team that can really thrive with better linemates or whatever.

Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Johan Franzen ($3.955m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Jiri Hudler ($2.875m) / Daniel Cleary ($2.800m)
* Tomas Holmstrom ($2.000m) / * Todd Bertuzzi ($1.500m) / * Darren Helm ($1.000m)
* Justin Abdelkader ($1.000m) / * Adam Burish ($0.900m) / * Patrick Eaves ($0.500m)
DEFENSEMEN
Brian Rafalski ($6.000m) / * Nicklas Lidstrom ($5.250m)
Brad Stuart ($3.750m) / Niklas Kronwall ($3.000m)
* Carlo Coliacovo ($1.700m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($0.900m)
GOALTENDERS
Chris Osgood ($1.417m) / Jimmy Howard ($0.717m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS
(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)
ROSTER: 20; PAYROLL: $55.046m; CAP ROOM: $1.754m BONUSES: $0.000m

I think adding Coliacovo and Burish, would be pretty solid. Coliacovo pretty big guy 6'1 200 good skater, good on the PP,can be a heavy hitter and can kill PK(67GP 32PTS +8), and Burish for the obvious reasons.


Franzen-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Hudler-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Cleary-Filppula-Eaves
Burish-Abdelkader-Helm

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Stuart-Kronwall
Coliacovo-Ericcson

because it would be an insult to offer him $4M/yr. when stuart makes just under 4. a 'hometown discount' for lidstrom would be $6M, maybe 5.5

I doubt Holland offers him anything but a blank check. Lids will determine what he makes.

If this increase holds true, then I definitely wouldn't expect Holmstrom to resign for less than $2.5 mil or Lidstrom to return for less than $6 mil.

Marleau? Jesus H Christ. Marleau is a perenial playoff choker. He had 1 decent playoff and it was only 2 rounds. His team got swept in the 3rd round. 1 decent playoff does not make up for 5 or 6 terrible ones. Remeber that Hossa guy? 2 goals in 16 games this year...
