Same old Hurricanes or cause for optimism?

After an eventful and at times confusing offseason, the Carolina Hurricanes got off to a scorching start to the 2018-19 season. In their first five games, the Canes went 4-0-1 while outscoring the opposition 22-15 in all situations and 16-9 at 5v5. They were also controlling 62.4% of the unblocked shot attempts at 5v5 during… Continue reading →

Goalies and the Playoffs: Fleury’s Magical Postseason

Marc-Andre Fleury is having an unbelievable postseason.  His current Sv% of .947 doesn’t just lead all goalies in these playoffs, it’s actually the highest Sv% of any goalie in a playoff year since the 1960s (min 8 games) …with one important caveat: he has one round yet to play.  I think the biggest question heading into the… Continue reading →

Picking this year’s Stanley Cup winner

It is my favorite time of year again. Lots of new teams compared to last year, so it will be an exciting one. There are some great matchups. Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia should be especially entertaining. Not to speak of Las Vegas making the playoffs in their inaugural season, and looking damn good doing it. Let’s… Continue reading →

Goalies and the Playoffs Part 4: How to Win a Cup

Previously, I looked into the effect that PDO (a team’s Sv% plus its Sh%) has on the results of individual playoff series (tl;dr: a big effect).  Next, I wanted to track that effect over multiple playoff rounds. The average PDO for best-of-7 series winners since 19841 is pretty consistent round to round: Round 1: 1.024 Round 2:… Continue reading →

NHL Numbers – NHL Salary Caps

NHL Numbers provides real-time NHL salary cap information including team salaries, players salaries, player stats and free agent lists. NHL Numbers is part of the Nation Network with the most comprehensive hockey news and editorial articles. Find the latest news on the Edmonton Oilers at Oilersnation or NHL Hockey Player News & the full NHL Schedule at DailyFaceoff.com

Our Team Salaries page breaks down teams based on highest or lowest cap hit. On that page, you can also sort to see which teams are getting Bonus Cushions and which teams are using the Long-Term Injured Reserve for cap relief. The Team Salaries page will also allow you to see how many players a team has signed, what their average age is, and how the team’s spending is broken down by position.

You can view Team Pages, which show all 31 NHL team rosters from this season dating all the way back to 2007-08. On these pages you’ll be able to see when players are becoming unrestricted and restricted free agents and which players have which cap hits. We also have all players who have been bought out listed, players who are injured listed, and players who are inactive listed, even if they aren’t counting against the cap.

From the Team Page, you can click on an individual player in order to look at their Player Stats page. On there, you can see their cap hit and salary and also a history of their previous contracts. You can also look at their stats, such as goals, assists, plus/minus, and penalty minutes, and you can toggle them based on spending efficiency to see how they’re performing based on their cap hit. We also have a Player Salaries page in which you can look at who the highest paid players in the league are and a Player Stats page in which you can look at who leads the league in goals, points, plus/minus, penalty minutes, goalie wins’ dn save percentage.

Our Free Agents page allows you to look at upcoming unrestricted and restricted free agents. You can sort these players based on position, or based on stats, or based on how much they’re currently being paid. It allows you to keep an eye on specific things such as the highest point-producing defencemen who will become an unrestricted free agent in the near future.

We have two important tools for fans too. We have a Draft Lottery Simulator, which allows fans to simulate the draft lottery based on the current standings. We also have a Buyout Calculator, in which fans can select a certain contract and make a hypothetical buyout at a given time to see how much it would cost the team against the cap if it happened in real life.

We update the site every day to prove real-time statistical and salary info for fans who follow the league closely. We keep a close eye on transactions, trades, signings, injuries, and everything else to ensure information is up-to-date for those who follow the league closely.
