The DFO Rundown
Oilers AGM Bill Scott gives us a salary cap 101 lesson
We are back to two episodes a week on The DFO Rundown! Frank and Jason are gearing up for the start of the NHL season and there was plenty to get to today on the show. To start things off, they talked about a few teams around the league that are in some interesting situations when it comes to the salary cap. With a lot of teams preparing to use LTIR to start the season, there are some moves that still could be made. From there, they talked about Nick Suzuki being named the youngest Captain in Canadiens history, players around the league that are being signed to PTO's, and what could be next for PK Subban as he sits unsigned with training camps just around the corner. Tyler Yaremchuk also stopped by for an awards-themed edition of 'Buy or Sell'.
Today's guest was Edmonton Oilers Assistant GM Bill Scott. He's the team's salary cap expert and joined the show to give us a bit of insight into how teams strategize with the salary cap, how LTIR works, and he also gave us one idea for how he'd change the salary cap system.
