A lack of a salary cap didn't kill the Expos. Having horrible ownership did.

There was nothing preventing the Expos from doing what the Indians did at that time and signing up their youngsters to cost-controlled deals for years to come. But Brochu and his group ran the team on the cheap. As soon as anybody got too expensive, out the door. MLB didn't give a crap, they knew they had a market worth parachuting the Expos into.
