What's the Pens current payroll number?

Postby ExPatriatePen on Mon Feb 13, 2006 4:48 pm

I'm curious.

The CBA has a floor as well as a ceiling.

Without Marios contract.
Without Palffy's contract.
The insurance should be kicking in on T-Bo's right? So that's gone.
Add in the probable bonus money for MAF.

Where in the heck do we stand? I've lost track.

Also, wasn't there a 'kicker' for teams in the bottom half? The escrow money right... I know I knew this last summer when the CBA was signed but right now my short term memory loss is kicking in.

Thanks in advance.

Location: Source, Destination, Protocol, Port, size, sequence number, check sum... Yep, that about covers it.

Would Thibault's contract come off the books for cap purposes if the team is colllecting an insurance settlement for it? The settlement is almost guaranteed to be less than they're paying in the contract, so it seems a little unfair to penalize them in that way.

I think insurance should have paid for most of mario's contract too, while he was around. And Fleury sure isnt going to trigger his 3mil in bonuses....

I doubt insurance picked up much or any of Lemieux's contract. My impression is that a player has to be out for a while before insurance kicks in, and then he has to basically be out indefinitely for it to pay out. Lemieux wasn't out for THAT long a time, and he was expected to return within a week or two right up until he retired and the contract was voided.
