Your argument is faulty because the Giants and Packers both have the same amount of money. If the Giants offered Ahman Green a $10 million signing bonus, GB has the resources to match it. If the Rangers offer Iginla a $7 million bonus, the Flames don't have the resources to match it.

And in the more proof that you can't build a dynasty under a cap file, the only team to win consecutive SuperBowls in over a decade was fined almost $1 million by the NFL today for cicumventing the cap in the years they won. Also shows you caps can and will be circumveted.
