Building a cup team is only half the issue, it takes big money to keep that team together and big money to prolong its life (like Detroit with all of its UFA signings and picking up older stars for cheaper trade prices).

How long will Tampa be able to maintain a cup level team if its budget is under $40m or under $45m.
ah has been said a million times over now, if a cap/stiff lux tax is brought into effect in the next cba, then all salaries will be lessened enough to where a team like tampa bay CAN continue to re'sign its players, teams WILL NOT have to be ripped apart limb from limb just because a cap/ lux tax is phased in. It won't be set in stone right away, it will give teams time to prepare so to speak, to let the huge contracts die off/retire/etc.
