Rich teams would just buy Picks and cap space etc.

Could you imagine a Cup winner from a large market. Example Wings win the cup we THe jackets have the first overall pick. Wings call jackets hey guys 6M bucks and we get your pick. Now not only did they win the cup they have the first overall pick ?
A mid tier team wins cup do you think they are going to have the Cash to spend on that pick from the jackets ?

Meanwhile the bottom feeders actually make cash and keep putting crap on the ice each and every season.
