    So who is eligable for this? I assume Boston and Chicago are out with the TV households qualifier...

    Edmonton, Calgary, Ottawa would be eligible demographic wise from Canada.

    As I am unfamiliar with American population levels I cannot say but I'd imagine Columbus would be one, Buffalo another.

    With the six-day buyout period each year, I imagine there is going to be enough opportunity for turnover that a waiver draft/system isn't really needed.

    The waiver draft was always a joke anyway.

    I don't think there will be a six-day buyout period each year...

    I just ran my own numers with this (see the other thread).

    Anaheim doesn't qualify. Calgary misses due to being 15th in revenue last year.

    TSN said early on, that the FULL CBA would be available to read.

    I haven't seen it. I'd like to see it.

    If anyone has a link to it. I'd love to read it.

    Thanks.

    Note that it is 2.5M TV households, not population.

    So this is really just an anti-Wirtz provision.

    The only US markets affected are New York, LA, Chicago, and Philly - Rangers, Isles, Devils, Kings, Ducks, Hawks, and Flyers.

    In Canada, I would guess that only the Leafs are affected.

    This strongly implies that it is a solid cap based on annualized salaries and not the total payroll spent, as has been speculated. It looks like Iconoclast's info was spot on. So much for stocking up at the trading deadline.

    What I haven't seen or heard yet, in an official way, is what punishment is in place for those teams that go over the cap? Has anyone seen anything.

    As well, what about any draft picks that have been acquired for future drafts that were to be in 8th and 9th round? What happens to those picks?

    I'm also VERY curious about 8th and 9th round picks that were acquired.

    As for penalties, if you mean going over the cap, the NHL just won't allow it.....
    As for reporting revenues....The Score had them yesterday.

    1st offence - $1 Million Dollar fine, loss of a first round pick, and the price of the revenues not reported.

    2nd offence - $5 Million dollar fine, loss of 3 first round draft picks, and the double the price of revenues not reported

    That language certainly makes it appear that way. It was in this column by Bob McKenzie that the "total payroll spent" idea was advanced:

    http://www.tsn.ca/columnists/bob_mckenzie.asp?id=130373

    So if Bob's column is correct, the language in the CBA Faq seems misleading. Maybe Bob can help us out with a clarification/confirmation when he gets back from New York?

    I'm waiting for a link to the new CBA myself. Would like to take a look at it first hand.

    Once someone discovers it please provide a link here.

    If a player's average salary is used for computing his cap amount this will allow teams to retain their overpayed veterans. They can just extend the contract at a low salary to bring the average down. A guy on the last year of a contract that'll pay $7 million could sign a 2 year extention for $2 million, and it would count $3 million against the cap for the next 3 years. Of course teams could really put themselves into salary cap hell if they don't do this wisely.

    Um, maybe Bob had it WRONG???!?

    Duh.

    Implies? I would go further than that, kdp. Clearly they have read the rumours. This unequivocally runs them over with a Mack truck.

    As well, so much for Massager's and other's suggestion that teams will be able to be over the cap in the off-season.

    Yes, maybe he did. That's why I'm inviting clarification. I figured I'd do it in a civil, mature manner, though, as opposed to the approach you apparently prefer.
