When NHL teams are at home in the East or West, they are expected to have some sort of entertainment program.
If they don’t, that can be a little irritating.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have a good hockey team.
They also have an excellent music lineup.
It’s not surprising that some of their players like to listen to their favorite music.
However, a recent rule change in the NHL’s salary cap has left some of the Penguins’ players in a bit of a bind.
The league announced this week that players are now allowed to earn up to $100,000 for music performances.
That’s a lot of money, especially when you consider they have a lot going on.
This rule was in place for a few years, but the salary cap was raised to $1.9 billion in 2021 and the cap has risen to $2.6 billion this season.
The Penguins’ team has been a little out of sync with that revenue increase, as they’ve only spent $40,000 on music for a total of only seven shows this season, which is only a quarter of what they spent last season.
That means they are still not getting the full $100K that their music-making expenses would have paid.
“It is not as if we’re making more money because of the cap,” Penguins defenseman Matt Cullen told NHL.com.
The money we’re spending is just being spent.
The team needs to do something.
The owners need to do some soul searching.”
It’s a situation that the Penguins have been trying to work out for a while now.
When they last signed a contract with Justin Bieber last year, they were paying about $250,000 per show.
That figure was about $15,000 more than what they were making in the past.
This season, the Penguins are getting paid more money than they were before.
They’ve been making about $150,000 in a season before the salary limit was raised, and now they’re about $160,000.
This season, they’re making about a third of what the past three seasons combined have been making.
The problem is that they’re paying that much money for a show they’ve never played before.
“If they get the money they want, they should be happy,” Cullen said.
“But they’re going to have to spend more money.
If we can’t afford to do what we’re doing, then it’s going to be difficult to get it.”
The Penguins are not the only team to have problems with the salary-cap increase.
The Nashville Predators also have to figure out how to manage the money in their payroll, and while the Predators are in a good spot financially, they also have some big issues that they are going to need to work on if they want to stay competitive.
It’s an issue that could impact the Penguins in the long run, especially with how their season ended.
Nashville had a big playoff series victory over the Detroit Red Wings, but they then lost in the first round to the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Penguins were the only NHL team to defeat the Flyers in the series.
While they’re a good team, they haven’t won a Stanley Cup since 1997, when they were the last of the four teams that made the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
They have a history of making the playoffs every year since the league was formed in 1984, but there are only five teams from the current Eastern Conference that have won the Stanley Cup in that span.
They won that championship in 2011, but lost in Game 7 to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
This year, Nashville is playing its third straight postseason game against the Flyers.
Nashville has been playing better this year than it has the past few years.
Nashville is 8-4-1 since the salary tax was increased and has a 9-1-1 record against the Lightning.
The Predators will be a team that has to be very confident to win this series if they’re to stay in the playoffs.
“We’re going into this series feeling really good,” Nashville defenseman Shea Weber said.
“The team has a lot to prove this year.
We need to make sure that we’re playing our best game.
If the game starts out a little slow, we’re going down that road.
But if we can do that, then we’re in the thick of it.”
