Do you guys think we will always have an "internal cap" at the midpoint? If so, how are we ever gonna afford to ice a team that can be a true Cup contender? If not, when do you think we'll deem our chunk of revenue sharing money unnecessary and spend a little more?

I keep hearing fans of other teams talk about how dangerous we could be if we could pick up someone like Brad Richards (and how he might be interested in coming here), and I long for the ability to do it...but I don't know if it'll ever happen.

Thoughts?
As long as we are able to meet the requirements for revenue sharing, we will try to get it. I don't know the details, but at some point we will no longer qualify I think.

But until we average ~16K paid attendance, better TV contract, etc., we aren't getting off of revenue sharing. So no, not forever, but not in the immediate future either.
