With a cap, teams need to draft wisely, pick their players wisely, and develop them wisely. Imagine if Toronto just signed Parise, Suter, Semin, and Jagr on 20 million/per deals, and then offer sheeted Weber and Karlsson 25 million each, etc, etc. Obviously that's going to be the most talented team, they had their rich owner spend his fortune on winning.
Yes, and Edmontons 'turn' is coming. Detroit's time is done. (for now) its a vicious cycle for sure.
