NHL salary cap set at $69 million for 2014-15 season

The NHL  and NHL  Players Association announced the payroll range for the 2014-15 season Friday, and the upper limit being lower than anticipated should make the Bruins’ offseason even more difficult than initially anticipated.
The lower limit is set at $51 million, with the upper limit set at $69 million. The upper limit was expected to be somewhere around $70 million, with recent speculation suggesting it could be higher. The Bruins, who have $67.58 million in cap space committed to next season, but can go as far as $4.027 million over the upper limit if Marc Savard  is placed on long-term injured reserve, will now be hard-pressed to retain their unsigned players — Jarome Iginla chief among them — without shedding a current contract or two.
Reilly Smith and Torey Krug are both restricted free agents, as are Matt Bartkowski and Jordan Caron.
