Have you ever taken an economics course? Like even in high school? Because the first principle of any business (for-profit or non-profit alike) is to make money. A business can sugarcoat it with other "missions" and stuff like than, but the number one goal is to make money.

Second, if a business wants to make more money, it has to either increase revenues or decrease costs. While the Habs have continually increased ticket prices over the years, if their only interest was to make money, the best way to do that would be to reduce costs (i.e., lower payroll).
The Habs spend to the cap every year.
An argument that they don't spend it wisely would be valid. Your argument that they "only want to make money not win a Cup", sorry to inform you, is not.
