I guess this means ticket prices are going up too, eh?

Duhatschek: The salary cap is going up, but by how much? - The Globe and Mail
Many NHL GMs anticipate the big bump will come in 2015, when the cap could go to $75-million or higher, because of the Canadian TV deal and a few other irons the NHL has in the fire, particularly relating to opportunities in Europe. If they can get an agreement for a World Cup of hockey in place, which likely won’t be played until 2016, the cap could approach $80-million.
