Why would the Leafs want a cap?

Sure I know it was an instant extra 30M in the ownership pockets, but they lose that by not being competetive.

No cap and the Leafs still make money spending 100M on players. If they make the post season they makes several millions per home game. IF they ever won the Cup, the merchandising alone would pay for 3 or 4 season of hockey.
