We want our owners to spend to the cap, too. Most of us understand why they cannot. It doesn't mean we are happy about it. It means we are educated about the situation, and have resigned ourselves to existing within it rather than unsuccessfully rebelling against it.
You also forgot that it is a city and province that has the highest income tax in Canada and is also a french first province. Speaking of media markets our broadcasters up here spend hundrends of millions in their own region alone for hockey because we demand it. Not to mention ticket prices I believe are the highest or near the highest in the league.
