    That's Wild

    • The salary cap ceiling for the upcoming 2024-25 season is going to be higher than expected. Originally, the consensus projection was that the cap for the new ceiling would make a jump to roughly $87.7 million. Officially, that number is $88 million and will become the new number for teams to go off of on July 1. It has been a while since we have seen a jump as high as this $4.5-million increase. [NHL.com]
    • Mats Zuccarello is expanding his resume beyond the rink. He is now part owner of English soccer club, Burton Albion who currently compete in League One, the domestic third division. [The Hockey News]

    Off the trail...

    • The Oilers are expecting much more pushback from the Florida Panthers in Game 2 on Monday. Even though they won, Florida should be looking to take advantage of an Oilers team on their heels to really make this series their series. [NHL.com]
    • In some unfortunate news, the Washington Capitals are purchasing the beloved CapFriendly website and it will be going offline on July 5. [Sportsnet]
    • There are always a couple old guys without a Stanley Cup ring in the Final they we are all collectively cheering for. This year, there are a good number of them. [ESPN]

    Always loved me some Armchair GM on Capfriendly.  My only feature request would have been to add the option to trade a player for a bag of pucks.

    Taking the site down receives a "0 stars" rating and "do not recommend" feedback from me.

    That seems like an odd purchase for the Washington Capitals. I wonder what they are planning to do with it? Are they using the guy to be their new capologist? 

    Sounds like something Leo should have done.

    The real story here is going to be who sees the void and becomes the next Capfriendly! IIRC, Capfriendly came about because the old one had the site owner pass away. Which programmers/analytics guys already have something kind of ready to release?
