Their payroll has gone up considerably since they started contending for and winning cups. To boot, they've been forced to trade guys like Sykora, Arnott, Guerin, and others along the way ... not to mention losing others like Holik, Tverdovsky (I know a stretch!!! ), Niewendyk, etc. to free agency.......

The days of a dynasty like say what the Oilers had are gone under any system........
The Red Wings have been able to keep their team together. That is the reason for their high payroll, not free agent signings.
