I have finished the eastern conference salary cap commitments as well as the northwest division. I have tried to keep them up to date as signings and trades happened but I may have missed a few. If I have, please let me know. I hope to get the other two divisions done in the next few days.

    Some corrections for the Thrashers:

    -Eric Boulton has re-signed. I believe it’s one year for $500,000.

    - It’s Garnet Exelby, not Grant.

    - Brad Larsen, not Larson (I know, I’m nitpicking).

    - Rucchin signed a two year deal worth $1.85 million this season and $2.4 million in 2007-08 according to the AJC. There’s no third year, and the cap hit each year is about $2.1 million.

    Thanks. They have been updated.

    If the Cap hit is an average of the contract length, why do Pohl and Ondrus show different amounts for this year and next (on the Toronto Maple Leafs page)?

    You are right. They should be the average. I have just changed them. I have also changed the Sedin’s contract value for the Canucks as well as I had used the wrong amount.

    I now have all the research done for all the teams except for St. Louis and Nashville. Hopefully I’ll get these done today and get the rest of the 10 teams posted today but they should be done tomorrow at the latest.

    Great job, David! I’ve been looking for this information for a while – I don’t understand why the network websites can’t provide it!

    I noticed you removed Linden from the Canucks’ list; I get the impression they declined to pick up the option on his contract, but I haven’t heard any news about his likely future yet.

    A couple of other minor errors: you’ve got typos for Branislav Mezei and Anthony Stewart (right next to each other). Also, it looks like you’ve swapped some positions around on Montreal – I’ve never seen Radek Bonk play defense!

    It seems as though the increase in the cap has left most teams with bags of room to spare – it’s a good summer to be a free agent.

    Thanks for pointing out the typos. They have been fixed.

    I am not sure of the status of Linden. I haven’t actually seen a news report of his option being picked up or declined though I suspect it would be declined because the Canucks are tight on cap space. They’d probably want to bring him back for much less money than $1.5 million.
