Certain GMs certainly have more power than others when it comes to getting UFAs. BG had way more power in Dallas than he could ever get here.

It's not just about having money, every team has money, it's about getting a good return on your investments i.e. getting the right guy for the right price.

A GM like Burke will have a lot of power this summer along with all the "traditionnal" powerhouses like Colorado and NYR. With the new CBA power might be more diluded betweens teams but Montreal , for taxe purposes, will continue to have a slight disadvantage.
