    With the $450,000 minimum salary, some players will actually be getting raises.

    Chris Taylor,who was slated to make $350K in 04/05, for one.

    Any others?

    Anybody that was making the league minimum, for one..... I believe those players will be making at least double their previous salary.

    Looks good on paper, but Taylor has a 2-way contract and doesn't figure to be playing in the NHL next season.

    I think purinton from NYR lolol...I believe he's supposed to make 400 or so after the rollback...I was going to bash whoever said the minumum should be 0, but in this case, I'd say you were right :biglaugh:

    Nathan perrot will get a raise, he was around 300K last year, so he was slatted for a raise rollback or no rollback.

    Not that it fits the theme of the thread, but Matt Cooke will probably get a raise.

    Huet of Montreal is making 400K without the 24% rollback, so he's up for a hefty raise!

    The minimum salary actually increases from $450,000 to $475,000 to $500,00 over the life of the six year CBA.

    Actually, the $450-500k minimum salary was a smart move by the owners. By offering such a high minimum, a sizable chunk of the union was left with nothing to fight for. Why would a Commodore or a Perrot or a Taylor support the union at the cost of their carreers for no reason other than to see the star players retain their big paycheques?

    Actually, i would go even farther and consider it a master stroke by the owners, although not for quite the same reason as you suggested (although I do not dispute your point as it is valid).

    What I am talking about is the effect that the minimum salary will have on the higher salaries. In a cap scenario, where there is a finite amount to pay players, every extra $100k paid to the lower tier players is $100k less that can be spent on higher tier players or the overpaid middle class. Now when i say higher tier, i am not talking about the elite of the elite, or what is in basketball (and soon in the NHL) are referred to as "max players" - guys who get the maximum salary. What creates the worst problems in sports are not the perennial all-stars who get high contracts. THe middle class guys and lower tier guys get pegged to them and inevitably earn more than their economic value. The top level players and midlevel guys also hamstring franchises with overinflated and immovable contracts. Accordingly, since the high salaries raise the tide for all the boats (as a general principle), the more spread out the money, the better off the league is as a whole. Less chances of a team being stymied by bigger contracts that don't work out. Also, upper level players' leverage is less, since the minimum salary will take up nearly $11 million in cap room in and of itself. You may not think that is a big deal, but at this level, incremental differences are meaningful.

    IMO ...
