The National Hockey League announced today that the mandated Salary Cap of $73 million last season will be operating on a league-wide cap of $75 million for the 2017-18 year. This is great news for teams like the Bruins who could use all the room they can as they work hard this offseason to build a solid roster for next year and future needs.


According to what the experts at Cap Friendly have to say the Bruins team could have as much as $12 million in available funds. Of course, a better part of that might be contributed to restricted free agent David Pastrnak as he looks to stay with the team. Regardless of when deals are going to be made a little wiggle room, and flexibility with the cap might not be a bad situation for the Bruins especially if this organization is in desperate need of additions via trade at deadline time in the spring of 2018.
