I think this is a great signing: Markov is coming out if his shell culturally and has the tools to be a top notch gunslinger type of defenseman like Jovanovski. Plus he's young.

Does anyone know what makes up the 39 million dollar cap? Is it the top 23 paid players per team?

Its the end of regular season sum of the total money spent in the season.

From what Bob Mckenzie said at the signing of the CBA, it's not a paper cap, as in teams must only have players totaling a maximum of 39m, at any point in the season.

Instead it is a real cap. At the end of April, when the league counts up how much each team spent on their NHL level players, that figure cannot exeed 39m.

So for a team like the devils who are currently over 5m over the cap, Lou doesn't have to worry until about jan. or feb. when he will have to drop some paychecks to make sure his total payroll payout stays under 39m.

Great signing!

This kid can play and he is better than Souray. And he's cheap. Pretty underrated around the league.

Ryder will be in a day or two but Theo might take some time.

No its not an average, its based on what the player(s) earn in the hockey year. IF Markov's contract called for $1.5 Million this year, then he counts $1.5 Million against the cap this year. THerefor the Habs have $37,500,000 more under the cap if no other player was signed.

How can they base it on an average when a player can be traded, retired ect...
