What will the NHL salary cap be in 2013-2014?
Twitter was ablaze this morning with news that the NHL lockout had finally ended, and surely this was the question on most everyone's minds. Gary Bettman told reporters around 5 a.m. that a tentative framework was in place, and soon after details began to emerge about the new CBA.
The salary cap, an issue that appeared to almost derail talks between the NHL and NHLPA a little over 24 hours ago, had finally been settled upon.
After all the back-and-forth, proposing and counter-proposing, will they-or-won't-theying, the cap has finally been set at a cool $64.3 million. So naturally the first question is, which teams does this put into a bind?
Here are five teams that are going to have to do a little shaking and moving to get under the cap next year.
