The NHL and NHLPA today announced the team payroll range for the 2008-09 season.

The lowest payroll limit has been set at $40.7 million, while the upper limit will be $56.7 million.  That leaves the midpoint at $48.7 million.

Following Thursday’s developmental camp, Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said this concerning the team’s potential payroll for the 2008-09 season.   

“We’ll be above at the midpoint,” said Regier.  “How far above it?  We’ll have to wait and see.  But we have some room, but not a lot of room.”
