BOCA RATON, Fla. - Fans and executives of teams that can spend up to the salary cap should put their rivalries aside to root for the Canadian dollar.Thats because the value of the loonie for the rest of this NHL season will help determine just how far the cap deviates from the preliminary estimate of US$73 million the board of governors was given Monday. Commissioner Gary Bettman, owners and general managers will continue to watch the loonie carefully.Our best guess, and its got some variation in it, is that if the Canadian stays where it is now for the rest of the season, which is about 88 cents, that the cap for next season would be approximately $73 million, Bettman said. Thats a guess, its subject to variation, and it also assumes that the Canadian dollar stays where it is now.The NHL, more than any other major professional sports league, is beholden to the Canadian dollar because it has 23 U.S.-based franchises and seven in Canada. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens generate significant revenue, but when the Canadian dollar is weak, that amount is less when its converted to U.S. funds.Bettman cautioned that the estimate of $73 million (and floor of $54 million) is not carved in stone. Much of the uncertainty has to do with the fluctuation of the Canadian dollar.Obviously if the Canadian dollar rises relative to the U.S. dollar, the cap will go up a little bit, and if it goes down the Canadian dollar, the cap will go down a little bit, but thats the universe that were in, Bettman said.Bettman added that any speculation about the cap going down from $69 million would require either a lack of understanding of the way the system works or the economy of Canada ceasing to exist, and thats not going to happen.General managers, even those of U.S.-based teams, have to care about the health of the loonie because of what it means to next years budget.Here we are in (December) and we have the Canadian Dollar fluctuating so much, you sort of look at it, digest it, talk about it when you get home with your people, your general manager, your cap people, Columbus Blue Jackets president John Davidson said. Its nothing out of the ordinary.___Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Mike Hughes Vikings Jersey .Y. - Sven Andrighetto scored once and set up two more as the Hamilton Bulldogs hung on to defeat the host Adirondack Flames 5-3 on Tuesday in American Hockey League action.

Brian ONeill Jersey . They showered him with "MVP! MVP!" chants. In many ways, it seemed like hed never been gone. Brian ONeill Vikings Jersey . Instead, Nonis and Kessel were sorting through the fallout of a wild melee with the Buffalo Sabres, one that saw Kessel suspended for the duration of the pre-season.Here are five thoughts on the Toronto Raptors seven-game loss to the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. 1. JOE JOHNSON (Nets): If I had to pick the guy that was the MVP on this Series, No doubt in my mind it was him. Forget his numbers for a second which were impressive to say the least. It had more to do with his presence and the inability for the Raptors to find a viable/consistent solution to overcome his vast talents. Bottom line, hes a very difficult cover and his strength, post skills, passing ability, creativity off the bounce and distance shooting make him a fascinating and gifted offensive player. Give him credit, He took on all the challenges and made the adjustments and was the difference in this series. 2. STATEMENT: Thanks again! You - the fans have made a wonderful statement across the North American sports landscape and in the NBA community that Toronto and the country of Canada is a growing and vibrant hoops hotbed and will be heard from for generations to come. Cant tell you the impression its made on folks all across the NBA. Utterly remarkable to say the least. Great Opportunity for Raptors President and GM, Masai Ujiri, to now build from a position of strength in his retention and recruitment efforts as he formulates his vision for the long term success of the franchise. A step forward. Long way to go though - yet you can start to see the light. 3. KYLE LOWRY: No idea what will happen with him regarding his future with the Raptors. Im hopeful they can work something out. Ill say this though, the man has really impressed me this season. Every day he left everything out there on the floor for you and competed like few players ever have in a Raptors uniform. For that, we should be grateful and impressed at the same time. Hes been a joy to watch this season and an inspiration to so many young players that can learn from his sheer will and effort that you can overcome a whole lot if you give it your all. He came up short but the man is a winner. Fingers crossed it all comes together and hes back in Toronto. 4. MARCUS THORNTON (Nets): In a Game 7, many times you need that guy that just comes out of left field that gets you over the hump particularly when youre the road team.dddddddddddd Give coach Jason Kidd credit, he played a great hunch and it paid off huge dividends for him. His perimeter shooting, creativity, rebounding and overall explosiveness were the edge the Nets sorely needed to pull off the road win in a deciding game. He was lousy in the early part of the series after playing quite well since being acquired from Sacramento but Coach Kidd showed renewed faith in him and was justly rewarded for it. Joe Johnson was the MVP but he was the difference. 5. DWANE CASEY: Actions speak louder than words. Three years and each year his teams have gotten better and he has grown each year as a head coach. As good a coach as he is - and hes a very good one - hes an even better man. Class act. He did an outstanding job this year and when I reflect over the three year period he has been consistent and stayed true to his core beliefs which I truly respect. He led a team this year that had many limitations (as we could all plainly see in this Series) to 48 wins, an Atlantic Division title and came up a bit short to a much more experienced, talented and deeper Nets team. Yes - Were all bitterly disappointed in the loss of this series yet when you take time to reflect, this organization has a true leader who is bright, steady and wont be out-worked by anyone. When I evaluate a coach, I always point to year three as my barometer of where you truly judge them. Theyve had more than enough time to get things the way they want and now you want to see that vision unfold before you. He has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind that hes more than deserving of being the head coach of the Raptors and when I evaluate him against his peers Im quite impressed. As a former coach, I think I have a pretty decent feel when I compare/contrast coaches strengths/weaknesses and when I look at coach Casey I see a man who has rolled up his sleeves, paid his dues and is truly a right fit for the task of the challenges that lie ahead for the organization. Hes a coachs coach and I can tell you flat out that the men in his profession not only truly like him but all respect him tremendously. Happy for his success. Good man. Good things do truly happen for good people.
