2011-12 Top 30 Salary Cap Numbers – Defensemen


List below are the Top 30 Salary Cap Numbers for defensemen heading into the 2011-12 NHL season. Due to front-loading contracts (back-loaded in some cases), and teams having to deal with the salary cap, a players cap number takes precedence over their actual salary. Drew Doughty for sure, and possibly Luke Schenn could be added to this list once they sign.

    For the Defensemen top salaries, you should include Wade Redden since he still signed with the Rangers.
