That's really not true - unless you're defining
as every nice player on a team. A team can keep a core group together, they just can't overspend on non-core players. That's one of the problems the Hawks ran into. The Huet and Campbell contracts are killer. And the fact that they had to overpay several players because of Tallon's QO snafu didn't help either.
Since teams aren't going to be infallible when it comes to free agent decisions, the cap basically makes it harder for a team to ice a Cup contender without cheap, young talent.
