Why do you believe that the richer teams have an easier time getting to elite status? Colorado built an elite team while they were the one of the poorest teams in the league. The Rangers and Leafs have been the richest teams in the league for a long time and they've been unable to develop an elite team.
You're trying to come up with solutions for problems that only exist in the minds of the NHL's puppets, the hockey media.
