If an ownership group is unwilling/unable to spend to the cap floor, they're nothing more than an anchor around the foot of league's teams which are working together harmoniously to improve the NHL product while growing the game and it's revenues.

My post is not directed at the Florida Panthers, as I'm certain they will do their best to meet the floor.
lol... you do realize that there are two sides to the NHL the business side and the players side. Clearly this would benefit neither as some players would be out of jobs, and business men would likely not want to invest in a league that would have there team sit out a year (lots of these owners own the rinks and stores inside of them). Obviously there are other sources of income but that idea is the worst one if you want to support teams in smaller markets.

Also they do not work together, they are just in the same industry. They actually compete with each other. Every team has the goal of winning the cup, and every team has the goal of making the most money. Some teams just can not achieve that in one season or two, they have to work for it.
