NHL PROPOSAL CALLED FOR A MINIMUM TEAM SALARY

     In New York, Larry Brooks reports that the plan rejected by
the NHLPA would have created a minimum team salary as well as
restraints on spending.  Currently, there is a $14M gap between
the highest-spending team and the lowest (N.Y. POST, 9/29).  The
following is a list of 1994-95 calculated team payrolls as
tabulated by THE HOCKEY NEWS.  The payrolls below are not final,
as several teams have significant players yet to sign (HOCKEY
NEWS, 9/30 issue).
