By Michael Sutter, USA TODAY Sports The NHL is expected to announce its decision on the next commissioner by the end of the week, but one question that is being asked is how much of an impact will the expansion and expansion-draft decisions have on the salary cap.
If the league’s decision is to expand the salary limit to $60 million for teams and $70 million for individuals, there would be a $3 million increase per team and $4 million increase for individual players.
It would also eliminate a $2 million cap bump for every team with a salary cap of $55 million or less.
But there are other factors that could affect the cap, including the number of free agents, whether the league can trade players, whether any of the expansion teams can become new franchises, how the NHL handles salary cap matters, and whether the salary caps will be reduced.
For a lot of people, it’s hard to imagine the NHL leaving Vegas.
The Vegas market is the envy of sports fans across the country, but that market is also the place where the NHL is headed, which is why many of the people in that market want to keep it in Vegas.
“It’s going to be a tough one, I can tell you that,” said Michael Mersch, a sports economist at the University of California, Berkeley.
“There’s not going to like it, I’m sure, but I think we’re all going to get used to it.”
Here are five takeaways from Vegas expansion and the draft: 1.
Expansion would mean $3.7M increase per player in Vegas A $3,000 cap bump would be $1.9 million for every player who plays in the NHL, and that’s not counting the $1,000 increase for every NHL player who works out for the team, which could be $2,500.
It could also impact how much a team would have to pay its top prospects, because players who are playing in Vegas are likely to be younger and more talented than those who play in other NHL markets.
If a team is looking to bring in a high-priced, top prospect, they could potentially save a lot more money on salaries by signing that prospect in Vegas, which would likely require paying a larger amount in salary cap space.
That could happen, as well, if the team is willing to pay more for a player that can help a team win more games than the team would be able to win on its own.

There are other issues that could impact the cap The decision on whether to expand or expand-draft will be announced at the end on Tuesday, but it’s not clear how much the cap increase will affect the number and size of the salary-cap bumps that can be applied in the next few weeks.
If Vegas goes through with the expansion process, the NHL will be able spend a total of $9.9 billion on its salary cap this season, which will add about $3 billion to the salary pool over the next three years.
If expansion goes through, the league will have to spend $11.5 billion in its salary pool in 2021-22, a total amount of $16.6 billion in the first three years of the deal, according to Sportsnet’s Scott Burnside.
The amount of money that could be saved by the expansion draft and salary cap will also be affected by the number, size and number of expansion teams.
For instance, if a team expands and the league allows one team to remain in the league (meaning they don’t get to take over the team), they could save about $2.5 million by the time the cap is reduced to $52 million in 2021, or about $5.2 million in the 2019-20 season.
But if the same team goes through the expansion-team process and another team joins the league, they would save about twice as much money by the start of the 2020-21 season (because there would still be four teams).
So, it all depends on how many expansion teams join the league and how much salary cap room they have.
“In the end, I think the expansion decision is going to have an impact on the cap.
It’s going the same way as the expansion for other teams.
They’re going to save more money than if there’s only one team in the city,” said Kevin Plank, an associate professor at the College of Business at the City University of New York.
“The question is, how much?
If you’re only paying $1 million per person, that’s going a little bit higher than what they’ve spent on other teams.”
Vegas expansion would reduce salary cap by $1M per team in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
If an expansion team finishes the year in the top three, it would save an additional $1 billion in salary- cap space in 2020 and 2021, but those savings would be offset by
