2013-14 salary cap set to be $64M | NHL | The Score

A pro-rated salary cap of $70.2 million for the shortened 2012-13 season followed by a salary cap of $64.3 million the cap is guaranteed not to drop below that number moving forward in 2013-14. The salary floor will be set at $44 million for both years.

Seven-year limit on free-agent contracts (eight-year limit when a team signs its own player to an extension).

A maximum salary variance of 35 per cent from year to year, with no more than a 50 per cent total difference between any two seasons in the contract.

The minimum salary starts at $525,000 this season and reaches $750,000 for the 10th and final year of the agreement.

Teams can only walk away from a player in salary arbitration who is awarded at least $3.5 million.

Each team will be given the option of two "amnesty buyouts" that can be used to terminate contracts prior to the 2013-14 season or 2014-15 season. The buyouts will cost two-thirds of the remaining amount on a deal paid evenly over twice its remaining length and will count against the players' overall share in revenues, but not the individual team's salary cap.

Revenue sharing between teams increased to $200 million annually.

welcome back NHL. welcome back jeffB and raptorman trying to feel good about their crappy basketball team while in the hockey thread.

yay.

whatever. i'm happy it's back. Don't really care what all the details of the stoppage were as i really didn't bother learning about it. The business side of sports is of little interest to me. Although i see that there are 2 amnesty options per team. That's cool.

As for Luongo...if you ask me only way Luongo should come here is if Burke sends a salary dump the other way. I would hope that even he is smart enough to not do anything different.

from what i've been reading, teams won't be using the amnesty until the summer since the 64 million cap won't be in effect until next season. it'd be smart to hold out for expiring contracts at the discount they'll be this season.

you know I have had some time to think about the situation in toronto, and the whole firing of the GM. It's just horrible if you're a leaf fan.

For years this franchise has been run, not by hockey people, but by the people who owned the club. A direct mirror image of how business is conducted on a large scale in the city of toronto behind the scenes, in boardrooms and tennis clubs and golf courses and lounges.

For those who don't know me, I am on this message board as a Basketball fan first. Used to play, loved it, and basically am sour and bitter because I am not allowed to do it anymore. Hockey was always my second love, played from when I was 4 till now. I also work. I have been in boardrooms. I have met and had to deal with on a first had basis the very people that you read about in the boardroom at the MLSE headquarters. I know what happens there, and I know what type of people make those decisions. It isn't what some may believe.

Toronto, New York, Chicago, Boston...these are the major franchise in the NHL that have had pretty limited success in terms of the big prize. Boston finally grabbed up recently, and NY, who boast 17 million people as a city, have rung it up...marginally. However, Detroit and Montreal, in the last 30 years, have done quite nicely. why?

Smaller market original six teams that don't have ownership firmly entrenched in the wretched, pompous, old boys clubs that the major market teams DO. they still run the teams like...teams. Detroit in particular, hasn't made a change in years, they keep peopl eon, for better or worse to do the job, wait out the highs and lows, and basically run a team, not an asset, and not a trophy for the corporate mantle.

When I read about Burke getting fired I was shocked. When I found out why, I was simply appalled. Brian Burke wasn't fired for his record. He wasn't fired because he traded prospects for the leagues 6th highest scorer. He was fired because the head of bell, didn't like him. In the back room and at the lounge of the granite club, the fucking dude just didn't like him because he was too brash. he was intimidated by Burke on a personal level so he did what money people do to people they have power over, he flexed his muscles and made him go away. And there you have it, another era in Toronto maple Leaf futility finally begins.

Like it or not, Brian Burke was creating a culture here in Toronto, there was order, there was certainty beginning and there was consistency starting. People like to use words like truculence, yet thats media shit that you need to avoid. Burke has quietly assembled some good young talent, talent he was letting grow on the farm and in Jr.. Dave Nonnis shares this idea, and even more so. so it remains to be seen, will he last?

Until the old boys clubs in Toronto are firmly kept out of the dressing rooms and offices that are trying to win Hockey games and build teams, Toronto will NEVER have a decent chance at building a winner. They can only buy FA's, and hope to get lucky. Rumours that this Cope guy likes the idea of trading a guy like Jake Gardiner to get a 33 year old goalie are proof to this.

I wish I didn't understand this stuff. I really do. I wish it was about trade machines and trashing the coach. Sadly, It's not. not even close. it's really rich guys pissing on their subordinates and measuring their cocks over expensive scotch and steak. It's also why i don't give a fuck when these people lock out and lose money. I really don't. I feel bad for the guys in places like Philly,and detroit, places where it's still about winning Hockey games and creating great franchises.

Fuck George Cope.

Brian Burke was giving full control to make a winner, he made questionable moves and the Leafs still have holes in their roster. I for one would let Dave Nonis have a full season to see what he can do with expendable players, this team needs a winner before Phil Kessel's contract is done.

Lol I was in grade 6 when the Leafs were eliminated by the Flyers the last time they were in the playoffs. I'm in my 3rd year of university now. My math isn't the best but that sounds like more than 4 years.
