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.

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.

We don't know of any such teams.

Kinda random, but John Shannon has had this tweet up for almost a full 24 hours now. He thinks it's the RFA compensation chart, but he took it directly from a PDF of the CBA so it's the 2013 numbers. Dozens of people have told him it's incorrect. It's still up. He's one of Sportsnet's top insiders.

He addressed it 3 hours later (off his flight to Vancouver, I'm guessing) and just didn't delete the wrong tweet.

They could make the cap retroactive to the previous years revenue. It would solve issues like this, wholly deal with the escrow issue, and eliminate this "what's the cap gonna be?" just weeks before free agency. It would require a one-year cap freeze to implement at this point.

Didn't know exactly where to put this, but yeah, hockey culture is messed up.

I read an article that said Brock Boeser wasn't eligible for either arbitration or an offer sheet like most RFA's this summer. I didn't think there were any restrictions on offer sheets to RFA's unless the player filed for arbitration, am I wrong or was the article?

Boeser is not eligible for an offer sheet from another team under the collective bargaining agreement because he played fewer than 10 games in 2016-17.

A pretty deliberate call up late in the season that preserves team leverage coming out of the ELC.

Thanks for that. It seems strange that a guy who has played two full years in the league has zero options other than to take what the team offers or hold out.
