Capitalism is all about winners and losers. if its OK for the owners to operate under a capitalistic model in one aspect of their business, then to me its OK if they run the entire league that way. I hope all the Canadian teams fold. If they don't like how things are run, start their own league. Have a cap. I hope Nashville, Carolina, Anaheim, Phoenix, Columbus, Atlanta, Floirda, Tampa and everybody else that can't make enough money on their own to survive fold. Thats capitalism. Shut your mouth, suck it up, take responsiblity for your problems.
Yikes.

Canada's dollar has been more valuable than America's in the past. But it's not good for our economy for it to be more valuable, because 80% of our exports go to the US, and because it encourages tourism from the USA. If our dollar is worth more than the US dollar, then Americans would export from elsewhere, or use more of their own resources. The bank of Canada purposefully works to make sure our dollar never is equal to the American dollar. So it's not like we are poor or nothing.

The NHL wouldn't survive without Canada. That's just really nasty, what you said. I'm shocked!!
