Let's say? Let's say? You have to invent a scenario to make your Fantasy Island view of the NHL problems work! Why don't you use a real life example of a non-elite team signing a free agent and becoming elite. Which poor team has ever been on the cusp of being elite but failed to get there because they could not afford a free agent?

Let's eliminate elite teams because if we don't, the Rangers will outspend Calgary in ten years and become elite with their wallet! Let mediocrity rule to solve a problem you have to invent?

This is a really convincing argument.
