from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,
If all the suits on Pennsylvania Avenue have trouble forecasting where the economy will go, it’s a good bet that your faithful puck chronicler could be off a tad, pinch, or decimal point when trying to forecast how the NHL salary cap will shape up next season, or through the next 2-3 seasons of the CBA.
However, based on the numbers bandied about by NHL general managers last week in Naples, Fla., as well as calculations offered by the Players Association, the players must prepare to surrender 13-15 percent of their overall salaries. For a guy like Zdeno Chara, on the books for $7.5 million a year, that’s a haircut upward of $1.125 million. As trips to the barber shop go, that’s much pricier than a “boy’s regular.”
