    Think the escalator remains low next season too.

    So what are the odds we 100 mil cap in 10 years? Or does cba claw salaries back again?

    Senators fans want to know if the floor (the Budget) goes up.

    If the cap goes up, floor increases proportionally.

    So I guess Melnyk will be looking for some insured LTIR contracts to get up to the floor.

    That is an 83M guess right now, but NHLPA can use inflator 0-3% right? Previously they had been using around 1.5% right?

    OP says estimate is 81.4M, but if the PA wants a 5% escalator, it goes to 85.4M or so.

    This season Sens are projected to be well above floor. Unless team unloads Stone and Duchene for cheap contracts/picks don't think reaching floor will be a concern.

    I think what they are referring to is the actual budget being spent on the ice. Take out McCarthur and Gaborik's insured contracts (approx. 9 mil combined) and the money spent on the ice drops from 71 to 62. Lose one of Duchene or Stone and you may still be above the cap floor technically, but in the money spent on the ice is actually well below the floor.

    If you take away money spent on mistakes (phaneuf/condon), that's another 4.5 mil.

    In other words, the sens could easily be running a team out onto the ice next year that totals around 50 mil in actual salary...with a cap floor in the low 60s:(

    Does anyone know when the new cap hit comes into effect? Is it July 1st when free agency opens or start of training camps? In the summer months, teams can go 10% over, but is that 10% of $79,5m or $83m?

    When exactly does the 2019-2020 season cap "start"?

    I couldn't seem to find that information anywhere.

    July 1. (But teams can exceed cap 10% during the off season. If cap is $80m, they can go up to $88m.) Official cap limit for the upcoming season is announced in late June (around entry draft).

    Teams must be in cap compliance the day before the start of the season. (IOW when season opening rosters are due).
