Like OTtawa and Tampa. They are rewarded they win, regardless of how much other teams spent on free agents.


The Coyotes are a good current example of this, they had neglected the farm for so long and when the new management came in they saw it as a weakness. They have slowly started to acquire younger players, although the quality is not there, that is why they are still signing free agents to supply the NHL team. In the future they will be a better team than before if they continue to develop players and work through the draft.
Exactly. Which means developing their young players, not buying old expensive players. They arent disadvantaged because they are spending less than other teams, they havent developed enough to have success yet. They need to continue. THey should be allowed to develop cheaply.
