And I think you see my point. Iginla would have to take a huge paycut, or go somewhere else. If he left, it would hurt the Flames, but isn't the point of a cap to help teams like the Flames? So what if the Flames traded a bunch of other players to open up cap room? Then Calgary is back where they started, with a bunch of minor leaguers and one superstar, and no chance to compete.
??? Why would they have no chance to compete?? Every team would have the same salary limit as Calgary, and every team would be just as squeezed as Calgary. Look at the overall, not just one team.
