nhl salary cap
We looked at some teams and players who could take advantage of the NHL's cap increase next season, which is set to be the biggest jump in years.
We might be seeing a shift in how teams allocate money, with the league's elite players rightfully getting a bigger chunk of the pie.
It's all relative, of course, with many factors in play. But 97 MLB players, 92 NBA players, and 57 NFLers currently have a higher AAV than McDavid's 12.5M cap hit.
With a cap in place and roster turnover high, teams rarely contend consistently for more than a few years at a time. That's why the Jets are going for it probably before they should be.
