Potential Resolution on Bruins' Cap Challenges Expected for 2024-25 Season

Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman, hosts of the 32 Thoughts Podcast, have shared a hopeful insight: the upcoming season might witness a substantial increase in the salary cap.

If the salary cap goes beyond the previous season's modest raise of $1 million, which Bettman and the league granted to teams, it could spark renewed balance across the league. This could potentially enable more teams to build competitive rosters and navigate their way out of cap-related challenges.

Although the exact extent of the increase remains undisclosed, it's a certainty that the cap will rise. This adjustment is anticipated to provide a helping hand to certain teams aiming to steer themselves in the right direction. For instance, take the Boston Bruins—struggling with tight cap restrictions after a strenuous season.

This anticipated cap boost would offer the Boston Bruins a brief window to address their cap concerns and regain their footing.
