In other words, here Tampa, we know you can't compete with the teams in your division, but we'll swap you out with a team that we've predetermined is going to suck to give you a fairer shot.

MLB sucks. I've heard the talking heads in recent days talking in no uncertain terms about players like Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford being traded. As if it's a foregone conclusion. And guess what, it most likely is.
And yet there's people who'll passionately argue that the salary cap is horrible and that the NHL needs to use a system like the MLB's.

...then again, there's also people out there who think Scientology makes sense, so, yeah.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
