Why doesn't TSN list each team's salary cap totals?

    Instead of just listing all the payroll committments, wouldn't it make more sense if they listed all the players currently included in every team's cap? It shouldn't be anymore hectic than updating a player's stats or updating a roster when a call from the minors is made.
     
  2. Good idea. I'd like to know how much the teams have to spend.

    Makes sense...

    It wouldn't be hard since the cap hit is just the average of a player's contract. For example, Luongo is making 6 million this season, but his cap hit is 6.75 because he's going to make 6.5, then 7, then 7.5 million over the next 3 years.

    The only reason that it might be difficult is because the cap hits are calculated on a daily basis....and they would have to add/subtract salaries everytime a player was called up/sent to minors. It could be done....but they would probably have to have at least one person on staff just to update these numbers. Maybe they don't consider it worth the cost?:dunno:

    I'd really like to see contract terms, like what you're giving with the # of years and amount per year, listed on one of the big sites. I don't know why no one does it. For a lot of the "minor" players this stuff never gets reported so there's no way to know.

    Why not pay Irish Blues a free-lancer's fee and just use his tables?

    No it's not, it's calculated amongst days on the roster and so on. Irish Blues can get into more details (mainly because he knows them and Mrs. Forbes didn't raise no mathematician), but I know it isn't as cut and dry as you say.

    It would be a very very difficult and time consuming task. Each team's cap totals would have to be calculated every day. Bonuses would have to be reevaluated every day to see if they are attainable. I'm sure it could be done but only with the NHL's complete cooperation. I'm sure Irish Blues can give you a much better answer as he's the closest one outside of the NHL offices to having a complete set of data.
