Could the Cap Go Up? I'm beginning to think this could be the case more and more though... There's a lot of pent up demand in traditional hockey markets and there is a good arguement that revenues will dramatically increase in the following markets... Tampa Bay (Cup) Calgary (Cup Final) Pittsburgh (Crosby) Nashville (Nice Playoff run & key FA signings) Phoenix (Gretzky behind the bench) Chicago (They signed some players and should at least out draw the Wolves this year) Los Angeles (Roenick's mouth should will a few thousand extra fans every game) In addition jersey sales should be through the roof this year with all the FA signings. The current cap has a built in 20% drop in revenue from 2.1B to 1.7B, and the PA found an additional 100M in revenue during negotiations and thier is an 50M from the TV contract that was unexpected. The following teams should have modest increases Philadelpia Colorado Detroit Toronto Montreal Vancouver Ottawa These teams should be in the position to at least hold steady Minnesota Columbus Dallas San Jose Edmonton Boston NYR St. Louis New Jersey Anaheim Teams with negative revenues should be limited too Florida Carolina Atlanta* Washington Buffalo NYI *Atlanta could be a team on the plus side with some resignings and a playoff run. Your thoughts and the obligatory poll question.
