Discussions continue between the NHL and NHLPA on next season's payroll range. It sounds like the 2019-20 salary cap and salary floor may not be finalized until Saturday.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) June 19, 2019

Yeah, that makes sense. It's not really that important of a detail. Take your time.

Kind of stupid for sure.  I mean I get that they had to get final revenue numbers and all that to set the cap, but they know when the latest date is for the Cup, so why not push back other key dates like the draft and free agency until you can be certain the cap number is known to all.  Either figure the cap number out earlier, or make the draft and free agency push out a week later.

CarltonTheBear:
In a follow-up tweet, Johnson mentions that it's possible we see a cap under $82mil.

That's what Bob McKenzie has been saying the last day or so.  Said the cap could be 81.5M

As a side note, the league might want to consider allowing that Vegas hockey betting thing to be part of hockey related revenues...just saying.

That'd be brutal for certain cap strapped teams.
