my point is this : if a team wants to have more salary than they have revenue, punish them. I read that wang has had to kick in 30-40 mill in the last 3-4 years to keep the team afloat. That is garbage. he should be cutting payroll to the bone like the penguins and building through the draft.

As it is now, the islanders are helping to keep salaries too high for every team. There is no way a team like the blues should be able to sign a doug weight for 9.5 mill and then lose 40 mill in one year. They are destroying the supply / demand balance in the league.

If there is no market for high priced players, their salaries will come way down and most teams should be able to turn a profit. The reason for my proposal is that it is unfair to apply a correct salsary cap for edmonton on a big market team like philly. Philly can and deserves to ice a high priced winner so they should be able to spend until it no longer makes economic sense.
