Bettman: Salary-cap projection for '15-16 around $73M

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 7:36 PM / News

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman told representatives from the 30 teams Monday an initial projection for the salary cap during the 2015-16 season is about $73 million.

Speaking at the annual December meeting for the Board of Governors, Commissioner Bettman provided the League's early look at what the 2015-16 salary cap should be, contingent on a couple of key factors.

"I went over a series of projections, preliminary, preliminary projections," Bettman said. “Estimates that are not carved in stone, but our best guess based on the information available making lots of lots of assumptions on things like revenue growth in the year and perhaps, as significantly, what may happen with the Canadian dollar. Our best guess, and it's got some variation in it, that if the Canadian dollar stays where it is now for the rest of the season, which is about 88 cents, the cap for next season would be approximately $73 million.

"It's just a guess and it is subject to variation."

Somber Lafleur pays respects to Beliveau

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 7:06 PM / News

Sean Farrell - NHL.com Correspondent

MONTREAL -- Jean Beliveau's stature was such that he could render even Guy Lafleur speechless.

A heartbroken and teary-eyed Lafleur paid his respects to the late Hall of Fame center's family Monday while Beliveau lay in state at Bell Centre for the second day in a row.

"They're special people and they have a lot of respect for the fans of Jean Beliveau," Lafleur said. "They're supporting and trying to thank everybody for their support. As an athlete, and I'm sure that the family understands that, they received a lot from the fans, and that's why Jean, he gave a lot back."

Canadiens' Therrien splits up Pacioretty, Desharnais

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 6:48 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The Montreal Canadiens are going through their worst stretch of the season, with one win in their past seven games, and coach Michel Therrien is attempting something drastic to help get them out of it.

Since taking over as Canadiens coach prior to the start of the 2012-13 season, Therrien has relied on Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais to form two-thirds of his top forward line.

Over the past three seasons Pacioretty has been one of the best goal-scorers in the NHL, and there was a belief that his chemistry with Desharnais dating to their time together in the American Hockey League was one of the reasons why he has had so much success.

Under Therrien, Pacioretty has played 84 percent of his even-strength minutes with Desharnais, according to HockeyAnalysis.com.

That, however, is about to change, with Therrien intending to split up his go-to offensive pairing when the Canadiens host the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.

Senators fire MacLean, name Cameron coach

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 5:22 PM / News

Chris Stevenson - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA -- Breakdowns, on the ice and off it, led to the firing of Paul MacLean as the coach of the Ottawa Senators on Monday, replaced by Dave Cameron.

Senators president of hockey operations and general manager Bryan Murray said consistent turnovers on the ice and a lack of communication between MacLean and the players led to the coach's dismissal.

MacLean, hired in the summer of 2011, was the winner of the 2013 Jack Adams Award as the NHL's coach of the year after leading the Senators to a 25-17-6 record. He leaves the Senators with a 114-90-35 record.

Cameron has been promoted from assistant coach. Murray said it is not on an interim basis. Cameron has two years remaining on his contract.

Murray said he and his staff, the coaches included, judged this season's Senators as a potential Stanley Cup Playoff team. They are 11-11-5 and sit four points out of the second wild-card position in the Eastern Conference.

Senators' Cameron built strong resume in juniors

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 3:50 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Long before Dave Cameron was hired as assistant coach of the Ottawa Senators three years ago, he was already building a reputable coaching resume in the Canadian Hockey League and internationally.

Cameron was promoted to coach of the Senators on Monday when general manager Bryan Murray fired Paul MacLean. In making the change, Murray cited an "obligation for a lot of people to perform better."

He's hoping Cameron can ignite the spark his team needs.

"He'll be a good teacher," Murray said. "We don't have a lot of older players, so the [younger ones] will certainly like Dave."

Cameron, 56, spent four seasons as the coach and general manager of the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors in the Ontario Hockey League before being hired by the Senators on June 23, 2011. In four seasons with the Majors, Cameron went 165-91-16 in 272 regular-season games. In 2010-11, he led the Majors to the OHL championship series and the championship game of the Memorial Cup.
