The only way the cap is going up is if the owners are making more money.
The cap accounts for 57% of leaggue revenue, so every time the cap increases the owners make MORE money. That includes the Habs.
- Ticket prices are going up every year.
- US Dollar is going down every year.
- There's no longer any revenue sharing being pumped into Atlanta.
Geoff Molson smiles every time the cap goes up.
