Can You Explain Salary Cap/Karmanos Cap To Me?

When I read about the NHL teams and their owners, I understand that we have the salary cap and the basics of that, but then I always read that Rutherford is constrained by Karmanos' own cap??? I read that Karmanos might not be rich enough to own an NHL team, and that he does everything related to owning a team, in the cheapest way, and that, of course, ultimately affects the team that takes the ice. How can we expect to compete with teams like the Red Wings, the Penguins, etc. if this is true??? What is the "Karmanos Cap?"

(Bear with me ... I'm new to hockey and the NHL ... just since 2002.)
