Well that makes sense.  Wonder what the premiums would be to insure Sid's new contract, being "high-risk" and all.

Because any reduction in the salary cap would be accompanied by a equal reduction in every player's salary. This keeps the % of cap each player takes up the same before and after. So we can work to 70.2, then after the CBA, each salary will just be rolled back to whatever number. So every team will still be under the cap.
It, ;)

Under the current CBA, any payments made due to injury retirement wouldn't count against the cap.  It's likely that won't change, and if if does change that current contracts would be grandfathered under the new CBA to not count against the cap, but it isn't definite.  That's an awfully big risk the Pens are taking right before the system undergoes an overhaul.

Actually, I'd say the reason they adjusted the cap is that is the rule as currently written and the system they are currently operating under and will be operating under until mid-September.  But, yeah, it's likely any cap adjustments will see a commensurate %age adjustment to individual salaries under the new CBA.

The salaries were rolled back for the current CBA.

If you sign a contract for a gazillion dollars and it's rolled-back to just below a gazillion would you care all that much?  You'd still be paid almost a gazillion dollars to play a game.

Also, not sure, but I believe it would only be cap-hit "salary" that would roll-back and not "signing bonuses", or what ever you want to call the front-loaded pay-outs of the contract.

I think it's a pretty smooth move by the Pens.  You sign him up for 8.7 million.  Surely he's worth that for his on ice, off ice, ticket selling, advertising ability.  If the new CBA has a rollback his contract gets included in it (I would think) and you get him for whatever % less.  If you wait until after a possible rollback you still would need to sign him for the 8.7 million aye?

True, all contracts are guaranteed, but I wouldn't be so certain that the Pens will be able to get Crosby's new deal insured.  Or, more accurately, I wouldn't be certain that the Pens will find it cost effective to get the deal insured.

If the likelihood of him not playing out the contract due to injury is 50% (for kicks), then any insurance policy would cost 50%+, probably more likely ~70% of the contract value) as the insurance company is not planning on losing money by issuing insurance policies.

If the maximum player salary drops below $8.7MM after the new CBA becomes effective, you wouldn't be able to sign him for that now would you and would no longer 'need' to sign him for $8.7MM/. ;)

But, yeah, it probably will work out for the Pens IF they are able to get the contract insured, as him getting his brains splattered this November and making him unable to play again would probably make him less valuable than $104MM or so.  If they didn't / don't get the contract insured, then it is a VERY ballsy move, and one I'd expect a hockey player rather than a businessman to make.

People are acting here like Crosby is Brett Lindros here and should be hanging up his skates.  If this guy was anywhere near that stage, The Pens wouldn't be commiting that much money to him and signing him for that long of a deal. They probably would have been looking to trade him and keep Staal around then.

As for the insurance, i don't think the teams go out and have to independently insure each contract. i would think the NHL itself has a policy on the entire league to cover salaries. If the player is as bad as some are making Crosby out to be healthwise, I don't think he could pass a physical and the league probably wouldn't be able to approve the contract  if its uninsurable

The Sabres team had an injury policy taken out for LaFontaine.  It was very well publicized at the time.  I'm fairly certain it still works the same way.  And it is possible that the Pens don't take out insurance on their player contracts.  It might be a risk they are willing to take.

Are you referring to 'health' insurance or 'salary' insurance?  The players are covered under health insurance policies and any injuries they sustain while playing are treated.  Salary insurance is a different matter and teams make their own decisions on what contracts to get insured as they are on the hook for at minimum 33% of all contracts and if players have to retire due to injury 100% of all contracts when the ink hits the paper.

Why would the league have a policy to cover player salaries?  The league doesn't pay player salaries (unless they play for the Yotes ;)).  There is no reason for the league to assume a liability for a particular owner and at least as recently as the Sabres' bankruptcy monies owed to former players were liabilities of the individual teams.

And Crosby obviously CAN pass a physical as he was playing this past playoffs.  There is nothing in the current CBA regarding a player being 'insurable' to allow the league to void a contract and haven't heard of any clause(s) in the bylaws that would allow it either.

And EVERYTHING is insurable, at a price.  The price to insure Crosby's contract would necessarily be higher than the price to insure someone like Ovechkin because Crosby has an injury (concussion) history and Ovechkin doesn't have that same history.  The probability of Ovechkin's career ending due to a catastrophic injury is less than that of Crosby's and an insurance provider (most likely Lloyd's) would factor that into any policy they issue.

Interesting piece of the Current CBA:



Quote

24.6 For the IIHF World Championships, the Clubs shall permit a Player to play for his
National team provided:
(a) The Player's Club either did not qualify for the NHL Playoffs or was
eliminated in an early round of the Playoffs.
(b) No agent or representative of the Player's National team inquired as to
whether the Player would be willing to play for his National team until after his Club was
eliminated from the NHL Playoffs and any such inquiry was not made prior to giving
notice to the General Manager of the Player's Club.
© The IIHF or the Player's National team agree to provide such insurance to
cover the remaining value of the Player's SPC.
(d) The IIHF or the Player's National team agree to provide such additional
insurance to cover the Player's loss of earning capacity as the Player may require.

National Teams have to buy a policy to cover the remaining value of the player's contract.

And you are exactly right.  The Buffalo Brain Trust has stated that they want the Sabres to be tougher to play against.  I totally agree.  Ott is the guy that will help do that for them.  Darcy knows this quite well and I think he will set his sights on either Ott or Doan or both.

Didnt you know? they play for Buffalo so they must suck... we'd be lucky to get anything of value for pominville.

Seriously this is why when ppl talk about how much Pommers sucks I laugh.  Guy constantly performs but because he doesn't run ###### over everyone from Eric Cole to Derek Dorsett is worth twice as much.

Wouldn't that give more incentive for the huge front loaded contracts discussed in the Parise thread? If parise got a huge signing bonus from TP on July 1, he keeps that money no matter what happens in the new CBA.

This was discussed earlier by a poster here (sorry I don't remember so if it was you claim it accordingly) that surmised that Parise could be landed theoretically at a $6MM cap hit by giving him a huge first few years. If that was all signing bonus that could give us a leg up in negotiations since its almost a given for new CBA salary rollback. UFA's should get their money now before they lose ~15% of total value.

I believe it was the fan of the captain that had that proposal.  I don't remember all the details, but if I recall correctly the key part was that about $25M ($24M bonuses ... $12M on July 1, 2012 and 12M on July 1, 2013 ... + $1M salary) would be paid in the first 12 months of the new contract Parise sign with the Sabres.  I believe bonus $ is not subject to the salary roll-back I assume will come in the next CBA.  The length of the contract ... comes out to a $6M cap hit.

Thanks NS. I think Parise would much rather have that type of deal than an evenly spread out that could get the 15% rollback over the next 5-10 years.
