i agree...

i understand the whole concept of 'nudging' teams to be competitive, but i think it's best that they widen the gap between the lower and upper. and then let the chips fall where they may. if an organization ices a low-cap team, and the fans still support them (with $), then the fans deserve what they get. it would affect salaries less. the rich could spend more, the cheapos could spend less. and more importantly, we would be able to watch hockey!

get it done guys.
