Tightening belts. The salary cap is bad news for spenders…

first_imgA new collective agreement has been agreed. Among other things, it will freeze the salary cap at 81.5 million for next season, and nowhere is it written that it will soon rise. Rather the opposite. Until the league reaches revenues of 4.8 billion, which was predicted for this year, it will be saved. That is the reality. Whether someone likes it or not. Payout money does not fall from the sky. They need to be earned. And the NHL earned much less than expected this year. It will most likely be the same next season, because it is very bold to expect the year to break out with full galleries.The new situation will affect different clubs and individuals differently. Deductions to the escrow stock account will pop up next year, which will affect everyone. Otherwise, players will get theirs. The main problem will be fighters without a contract. While previously elite hockey players in the state of unprotected free agents looked forward to July 1 and very often turned their noses at the offer of the original club to wait for the better, this year a lot of things can be different.And it’s not just about the date. The originally announced date of opening the mercenary exchange was November 1, now it seems that the market will start in mid-October. One week after the Stanley Cup, most likely on October 9-11. According to Chris Johnson of Hockey Night in Canada, this means that the draft and the free market may start in parallel.Free agency for the 2020-21 NHL season will either be Oct. 9 or seven days following the Stanley Cup Final (as late as Oct. 11).That means we could have free agency open the same day as the first round of the entry draft is held. — Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) July 10, 2020What will they choose from?As every year, a lot of players were shaking at fat contracts. The largest fish in the transfer pond will be Taylor Hall of Arizona (pictured). Then there is Alex Pietrangelo from St. Louis, Braden Holtby of Washington, Torey Krug of Boston, Tyson Barrie of Toronto, Jacob Markström and Tyler Toffoli of Vancouver, Mike Hoffman and Yevgeny Dadonov of Florida, Robin Lehner of Las Vegas and many others.These guys certainly don’t get the job done, though probably not for the money they got last year. But somewhere at the end of the series there will be names that may be completely out of work. Hiring a salaried young man from a junior will be cheaper.In many cases it will be a necessity. Toronto overflows the salary cap most significantly, with the contract ending in a few players only in defense. They will have problems elsewhere. More than half of NHL clubs spend at the pay ceiling. They are the most environmentally friendly this year with 72.7 million in New Jersey, some space has Ottawa, Los Angeles, Colorado, Columbus, plus a few others. Otherwise it will be a fight.And beware, the salary cap may even fall! Should league sales (HRR) fall below $ 3.3 billion, it would cease to be 81.5 million guaranteed. This is probably not realistic, although with long-term closed stadiums it can happen. If the HRR is kept between 3.3 – 4.8 billion, the ceiling of 81.5 million applies. Lower limit of 60.2 million. If the league turnover exceeds 4.8 billion, the ceiling will increase.Top hockey is fun. Nothing more, nothing less. Entertainment is one of the goods with high elasticity of demand, economists say. You don’t necessarily need them, you can easily give them up. Back in the 1960s, NHL players routinely sought out civilian jobs over the summer to earn extra money. For example, Gordie Howe played baseball after the end of the hockey season, his friends from the team worked in a car workshop. Today, NHL stars are lifelong millionaires, but even this state has its boundaries.The NHL is expecting a poor summer, actually autumn. And quite possibly a few more years.

Steelers’ big win over Falcons felt a little unexpected (Oct. 10)

first_imgSTEELERS CB JOE HADEN shut down the very potent Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones, in the Steelers’ 41-17 victory, Oct. 7.There was a certain cloud of doom hanging over Heinz Field as Steeler Nation anticipated the invasion of the Atlanta Falcons playing the Steelers, Oct. 7. Both teams were reeling from sudden and unexpected losses to begin their season and as of game time, neither squad seemed to have discovered the antidote to end their misfortunes. But when the final gun sounded, the Steelers, on a very hot and humid afternoon at Heinz Field, achieved a very, very unexpected 41-17 victory over a usually high-flying Falcons team.The Falcons swooped into Pittsburgh flying very eagle-like with that predatory “look” in their eyes, talons gleaming and extended focused on their prey. But they exited the Steel City appearing as if they were related to a flock of New York City Central Park pigeons, waiting for a few stale bread crumbs to be tossed their way.There was something different about this day, this game and this team. During their previous four games when facing the offensive coordinators of the Browns, Chiefs, Buccaneers and Ravens, Keith Butler, the defensive coordinator of the Steelers, appeared to be playing checkers in regards to his defensive game plan while the opposing offensive coordinators were playing chess.Everyone was pining about the subpar defensive talent that the Steelers were trotting onto the field, but many observers failed to point out that many of the defensive schemes that Mr. Butler devised never transitioned from the blackboard to the gridiron.Extraordinary Steelers cornerback Joe Haden had his mojo working on the Falcons’ all-world wide receiver Julio Jones, blanketing him for almost 60 minutes. Haden limited Jones to a mere five catches for a measly 62 yards. That, my friends, is a very seldom accomplished feat by any defensive back that is charged with covering Jones.Although the Pittsburgh offense was by far the most balanced it’s been all season, the “bromance” between Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wide receiver Antonio Brown almost short-circuited Pittsburgh’s offensive momentum right before the intermission. With 34 seconds left in the first half, and the Steelers hanging on to a 13-10 lead, the Steelers had the ball, first-and-goal at the Atlanta 7-yard line. Roethlisberger attempted a pass to Brown which was incomplete. On the very next play when “Big” Ben attempted to force a pass to his “buddy,” the pass was intercepted by the Falcons, erasing a possible three or six points from the board for the Steelers! Brown seemed to exhibit a sort of “pseudo” modesty after the game. When Brown was asked, “Does it feel good to have your first 100-yard receiving game (for the 2018 season?)” Brown acted as if he didn’t notice. “Well, I’m counting wins. You can probably ask Dom (Rinelli) how many (100-yard) games I got.”Hmm, or maybe someone should ask Randy Fichtner, the Steelers’ offensive coordinator, how many 100-yard receiving games that Antonio Brown has, being as though Fichtner bore the brunt of Brown’s wrath during the Steelers’ loss to the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field a few weeks ago.The Steelers defense also received a few “questionable” penalties and Mike Tomlin was not pleased. As far as the hands-to-the-face calls on Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree: “Those look like legitimate calls, we got to get better there but some of the other stuff is a joke. We got to get a better National Football League. These penalties are costing people games and jobs. We got to get them correct so I am pissed about it, to be quite honest with you.”The following is my advice to the NFL. If a dragon is asleep, don’t provoke it unless your fire retardant suit has been tested.(Aubrey Bruce: [email protected]) Like us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlFollow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierlast_img read more
