I remember after the lost season we fans all wanted a way to follow the salary cap around the league. Before I ever heard about Capgeek I learned about http://www.nhlnumbers.com. I was reading Spector's Hockey at the time, and that was the first source he used. Later, Capgeek surpassed the simple chart provided by NHL Numbers, and from what I can tell, many forgot about the site or only started following the cap with the creation of Capgeek and its algorithms.
I am sorry Mr. Wuest's health has forced him to shut down his internet opperations, both at Capgeek and Red Wings Central. His controbutions to Wings fans and NHL fans at large will be greatly missed. I know many of us have expressed our thoughts and prayers for his reocvery regardless of whether or not he is able to restart site opperations again in the future.
It is on that note that I am writing this blog to remind our community about NHL Numbers. Yes, it's only a simple chart, and any trades will have to be personally calculated, as well as potential buyouts. But the charts are easy to follow and they do have a separate free agent list. So at least that's something, right?
