It doesn't prove that if you can spend, you can become elite.
Deal with the scenario that I provided (Flames and Rangers). If that scenario would occur under this CBA, then it proves your statement false
You claim that richer teams will not have an easier time building an elite team than a poorer team. I have provided a scenario where a team with a more lucrative market is more likely to build a winning team than a poorer team. This proves your assertation false.
You can keep trying to divert the conversation, but it doesn't change the fact that you are wrong. Either prove that scenario as false, or retract your claim.
