Salary Cap Raised

Surprised this hasn't gone up yet. Cap raised to 71.4 million. Floor at 52.8 million.

Not surprisingly who does this work out best for? The Hawks. Hate those guys. If they move one of Sharp or Bickell they'll likely be able to squeeze just under the cap with a pretty decent team again.

Also, Ducks are apparently beneath the cap floor. They're gonna be scare good once they start spending money.

Moment of silence for the cap not being 69 million.

Personally I had hopes it would go up higher around $ 74 million, Wings are an original 6 team so it would have helped us longterm either by 1. unloading bad contracts and 2. offer-sheet some guys that are worth it.

Holland is not going to offer sheet anyone. It's just bad business. All it would do having the cap that high is allow teams like Chicago to hold on to their players. Also, it would actually decrease our chances of landing a top FA.

Fore reference the current cap is 81.5

Kyle Dubas is happy I guess

at 84, that gives #38M! Add to that, if needed, Z's $6M! I think we are sitting very good!

Its not optimal for us seeing the cap rise this much. We had lots of space anyway.

Or kickazz.  Gone, but not forgotten casualties of Kenny Holland's final years as GM.  

He'll turn up around election time to call us Trump supporters racists/homophobes/misogynists.

Don't worry. In 10 years when this team is good again, they'll put the squeeze on us.
