TIP OF THE CAP: In Dallas, Mike Heika noted the Stars this summer added $8.2M to their payroll and "climbed to within" $2.2M of the NHL’s $64.3M salary cap. The top 24 teams in the league are within $4M of the cap, which means "trades have to be salary for salary, and teams have to get creative if they want to make deals." Stars GM Jim Nill said, "It’s a concern, but teams will have to find a way around it." Heika reported Nill is "watching every penny he spends, and said he has daily meetings with the front office to see where savings can be made." If that means "operating with less than 23 players, he’ll do it." If it means "sending a player to the AHL instead of keeping an extra body, he’ll do that too" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/10).
