The Salary Cap Providers

from Matt Porter of the Boston Globe,

Neither Jamie Davis nor Hart Levine knows what David Pastrnak’s next contract will look like.

They can’t say whether NHL commissioner Gary Bettman’s projections about the salary cap ($10 million rise over the next three years) are spot on, or too optimistic.

They can’t say if rebuilding teams with eight-figure stars, such as San Jose (Erik Karlsson) and Chicago (Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews), will trade those contracts.

They don’t hold all the secrets, but as many who follow the NHL have learned, they do offer pretty much everything else you’d want to know.

Davis runs CapFriendly, one of two major online NHL salary-cap resources. Along with Levine’s PuckPedia, a younger competitor, they can show you what players of Pastrnak’s ilk are making and how much the Bruins can afford to pay No. 88, who entered the weekend tied for fourth in the league in scoring (9-17—26).
