    I want to know.

    On the salary cap which players of your teams are include in?

    You have 20 players constantly in your team, but when you don't need a player anymore you send him to your AHL club, but does his salary count on the cap?

    If yes, does every of your prospects contracts are included in the cap?

    No one knows for sure untill they release the damn CBA, but there was pre-agreement speculation/rumors that the Salary Cap included players in the AHL/ECHL earning more then $75K on one-way or two-way contracts with the NHL team. This was to prevent a team from stockpiling players under contract in the minor leagues for injury callups or future trades. There were also rumors that any minor league player (who has played enough NHL games to no longer be exempt from waivers) earning >$75K who gets called up is exposed to waivers when being called up in addition to being sent down. This would also discourage teams from stashing expensive talent in the minor leagues.

    Darcy Regier seemed to say that teams could vary b/w 20-23 players on their cap

    Any money paid as salary, signing bonus or individual performance bonuses from the team to the player will count against the cap.

    That seems reasonable, since the last CBA did not have a roster minimum size other than the game day requirement of 20 (18 skaters / 2 goalies). The 23 man (and earlier 24 man) roster limits were just maximums.

    But teams will have to alot cap space for minor injuries. The cap provisions for injury replacements only affect major injuries (24 days / 10 games minimum). If you have a 20 man roster and get a minor (couple of game) injury, you will take at least a $450K hit for a replacement.
