No one is arguing cap space for its own sake.
What we're suggesting is that if the team had a bit more cap awareness we could maybe have a few more good players on it and thus a higher chance of winning a Cup.
I really don't see how anyone can disagree with that at all.
If Gomez made $3 million instead of $7 million, the team could have Wiz instead of Kaberle and keep Spacek and otherwise be identical. How would that NOT make the team better?
Actually, that's exactly what you're doing...
As for your point about if the team had more cap awareness, we could have a few more good players.
What's to say that if the Habs had more cap space and acquired more players, that those acquired players, would underachieve just like Cammy, Gionta & Gomez are???
Gomez making 7.3M is not what's hurting the team...what's hurting the team is Gomez makign 7.3M AND while not producing.
Trust me, if Gomez finished the year with 70pts and the Habs won the Cup, you wouldnt care at all that he was overpaid.
