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.
the leafs haven't even been to the finals since 1967. so even when they were spending a ton of money they weren't making it. rangers not since 1994. they weren't winning when there wasn't a cap they were just driving up the prices other teams had to pay for players.
