''How could a luxury cap be detrimental to a team like us?'' McKenzie said. ''That way, if a team like Detroit or the New York Rangers wanted to spend a lot of money, you tax them and bring the money back here. You get a few extra million dollars out of a deal like that and maybe you can afford to go get the player that makes you a Stanley Cup contender.
''We'd be like, 'Hey, nice signing, guys. Please do it again for us.'''
Jim's been punched in the head too many times if he thinks the NHLPA's proposal does anything to help the Predators compete. Under the NHLPA's last proposal, 7 teams would pay tax, raising a grand total of (wait for it) $9.77 million league-wide. Whoa. Divide that among the other 23 teams, and it gives each team a whopping $424,782. That doesn't even pay for ... Jim McKenzie.
