They chose not to pay the luxury tax, it doesn't mean they don't have the ability to.

2011 the team made 20-25Million (Forbes #), This past year they made between 30-35Million in operating profits (From ESPN's Bill Simmons).

The owner chose to profit instead of go for a championship, its his choice but with the tax/soft cap they had the ability to for it. In 2-3 years Edmonton will be against a hard cap and won't even have a choice to keep some of there best young players.
