Looking forward at the 2010-11 NHL season there is much doubt of where the salary cap will be. Rest assured, it isn't going up, maybe will drop 10%, but I feel will stay where it is.
The Islanders have committed a cap hit of $9,255,067 for two players next season. One is Yashin who they continue to pay to float on the ice in
. The second player continues to rehab and hasn't played much in over a year in DiPetro. Russia
The Rangers have committed $9,087,500 for four players next season with Kotalik, Callahan, Avery and Dubinsky.
This leaves the Rangers with $167,567 which can be allocated to Avery and Torts couples’s therapy bill in an attempt to reverse the neutering job that has occurred this season. Oops. I just noticed that Avery has scored 2 big goals tonight.
One has to ask who is getting more bang for their dollar? Trade Roz at the deadline and/or off season and let the kids play.
The future looks bright in the City that never sleeps.
