Cap to Increase
Good news to Calgary Flames fans. The NHL salary cap is expected to rise at least 3 million dollars, to over 53.3 million next year. The original cap was 34.5 million when the lockout ended but has exploded in the three years since.
With the Flames locking up their core to expensive long term deals this will add some room to get a little more second and third line support to compliment the strong starting line-up.
This must be good news for the NHLPA as salaries continue to rise.
