I would argue that although it screws mostly every other team, what Dolan is doing is best for his business and makes him the most money. As long as he can sell out MSG and have good ratings for local TV, it's smart for him to go out and create a sense of excitement(trade for high priced players).

The Luxury tax would even it out for lower level teams, while still allowing Dolan to go out and overpay players.
Yep, it's true. What's smart for a small market team is different than what is smart for a large market team. That's the problem. The league cannot survive with the system the way it is currently, due to the gap between rich and poor.
