How do the poor teams manage the money better in a cap system where the lower end of the cap is nearing 60 million?

Teams can manage there money better as is right now in only 1 or 2 ways. 1 is to make the entire team share the same room on the road, bus instead of fly. (2 biggest costs that has gone up, that isnt related to players salary's.

Teams can try not field a competitive team and just always run at the cap floor. But i am sure that is helping the islanders bottom line right?

The nhl is to much of a gate driven league to have, players taking up so much of the revenues. If the players want to stay at 57% then change the money they receive that from, instead of revenue it comes from profits (1 thing the players do not know the difference between).
