Bruins v. Toronto (spend)

Tweaking the Guide a bit I used as a basis:


Salary Cap 81.5 Million

Position Total(M) Ave (M) % of Cap
F - 1st line 25.5095 8.503166667 31.3%
F - 2nd line 11.0025 3.6675 13.5%
F - 3rd line 5.542 1.847333333 6.8%
F - 4th line 3.0155 1.005166667 3.7%
F - extras 2 1.956 0.978 2.4%
D - 1st Pair 14.67 7.335 18.0%
D - 2nd Pair 6.683 3.3415 8.2%
D - 3rd Pair 2.0375 1.01875 2.5%
D - extra 1 0.978 0.978 1.2%
Goaltenders 2 10.1 5.05 12.4%
100.0%

Now, using the 'depthchart' from CapFriendly and pasting it into a spreadsheet we get.

$7,920,001.00

This does not include commitments that are off the depth chart i.e. Miller, Moore, and Beleskey (retained).
The Bruins are modestly overspending on their defense, and 3rd line depth. They can because of the underspend on the 1st line and 1st D-Pairing.

Compare to Toronto.

This does not include commitments that are off the depth chart i.e. injuries and Kessel (retained). The savings on the first line D-pair (which I likely overweight, but .. I played D in HS so that is my bias to value it), goaltending and first line , are completely absorbed by the massive spend on what CapFriendly lists as the second line (Tavares, Marner). They can likely keep this up until Andersen is up, then they will have to do something about their spend on forwards (or find a great rookie goalie).

*Capfriendly had inconsistent numbers for Nylander on the depth chart webpage, so I went with the main page.
