Summer Cap Issues

from Ian Kennedy of The Hockey News,

According to CapFriendly, nine NHL teams are poised to spend over the salary cap in 2022-2023. Using LTIR, however, not all of those teams are in trouble…at least not yet, but these teams will be watching their cap closely this season, and will need to crunch the numbers if they intend to make any additions to their rosters.


The acquisition of Shea Weber was a band-aid for an organization that can’t print money fast enough. They were forced to give away Max Pacioretty and throw in Dylan Coghlan to the Carolina Hurricanes for nothing, except the almost $8 million in cap relief it provided the team. 

Unfortunately for Vegas, they aren’t out of the cap crunch yet. Already over the salary cap (although they’ll be compliant due to Weber’s relief), the Golden Knights only have two-thirds of a roster signed. They still have some meaningful RFA’s (Nicolas Hague, Keegan Kolesar, Nicolas Roy) to be signed, and have no room to make an in-season trade, unless it’s again shedding money…and talent. The clock is ticking for Vegas until this cap nightmare can no longer be avoided.


The main reason the Flyers missed out on Johnny Gaudreau is that they literally did not have the money.
