Devils May Predict Cap Ceiling

The New York Post has an interesting take on the potential lockout.
Mark Everson guesses that if there is a salary cap, it’ll be somewhat more than the $31 million per team that’s been mentioned everywhere. He puts the potential cap in the $50 million per team range. The reason? That’s where GM Lou Lamoriello, one of the league’s most respected and fiscally responsible GMs, has the Devils’ payroll. Lamoriello wouldn’t risk going over the cap so he must have a pretty good idea of what it will (or won’t) be.
