Are the Rangers considering trading Kakko and/or Chytil?

The NHL cap ceiling is likely to grow $1 million to $82.5 million next season.

This is on projected NHL revenues of $5 billion this year, as the players work to repay the $1 billion debt to the owners as a result of cap ceiling increased beyond revenue growth. This was planned by the players, to lower escrow. It is expected that the debt will be paid off in three years.

After that three year mark, we should see big increases in the cap ceiling thanks to the new TV contract, which will help the Rangers a bunch. But owners will cry COVID for the next decade, so expect to see some battles on this front for a while.
