    Does the cap include coaches salaries and their staff? I'd imagine not, but with head coaches now commanding $1 mill+ figured I'd ask. Same with GM's I guess. What does the NFL do for coachs?

    you can't cap the salaries of anyone in management. there's no such union to negotiate this proposal with. if the NHL did that, i'd think there would be some major league lawsuits on the way.

    enjoy the electrical show tonight? :)

    Yea if that were the case the coaces would have been on the NHLPA's side the entire time.

    No they do not, and I think you'll see coaching salaries begin to rise. It's one way fro the bigger revenue teams to gain an advantage.

    Why not? The NHL can institute a cap whether there`s a union or not. The same arguments the pro-owner fans had in favour of a cap for players would apply here too, but they`ll never admit. When owners want to squeeze every last cent out of the fans that they can then it`s all right. If coaches and management want to make as much money as they can then it`s all right. But when a player tries to make as much money as they can these fans scream " GREEDY! GREEDY!"

    Fans were shouting GREEDY GREEDY and that at Phil Jackson last month when he returned to the Lakers.

    Doubt it. There are about 5 coaches worth paying more for and the rest and pretty much interchangeable.

    That is a very good point, and one I hadn't considered. I have always thought changing management/coaches was one of the best ways to improve a team.

    The NHL cannot institute a cap without a union, because they would run afoul of antitrust law.

    If you're asking what the other leagues do, unless I'm wrong

    The NBA includes only players
    However the NFL includes everyone relating to the on-field football operation. However for cap purposes NFL contracts are not guaranteed.

    Chagning coaches is usually the case of "downsizing the blame" to an easy target. Usually it's a combination of things beyond the control of the coach, including player personnel, the responsibility of management.
