Does anyone know how Hockey Related Revenue works? I'm confused by this. Do players get this over and above their salaries or is their salary a portion of this?

I do believe that it's where their salary comes from and is used determined what the maximum and minimum caps are.

The projected cap for the season would be $70.2M under the old CBA. Under the latest proposal, the NHL would have the cap at $58M

What I'm confused about is this.

"The league's proposal did not include an across-the-board reduction (or "rollback") to existing contract values. Necessary adjustments would be financed entirely from a combination of modified contracting practices, increases in league-wide revenue and from the players' Escrow contributions."

"modified contracting practices" Is that the same as creative accounting?

How will the cap be calculated for teams that are currently over $58M if there if there's no rollback in salary? 16 teams are currently over $58M.

I'm sure whatever it is Homer it won't benefit the Senators somehow
