payroll compared to standings

looking from a payroll stand point ,to rank in standings ,the tampa bay lighting(33 million) have to be the "best buy" payroll wise in the leauge.there sitting 1 point behind the detroit redwings for the leauge lead who's payroll is 77.8 million
these payroll figures havent been update since the trade deadline.
some of this has to make you shake your heads.
example..nashville preds payroll 23 million (lowest in leauge)and sets currently in the final 8 th spot in the western conference.
st louis with a payroll of 61 million sets currently in 7th spot in the western conf ,1 point ahead of nashville preds..make ya go hmmm doesnt it.it was talked about the owners wanting a 30 million cap.theres only 5 teams with a payroll under that in 2004
