We had a cap with 30 teams for 4 years and expanded without a cap. With a cap, ratings are just slightly better. No one has shown parity has lead to increased TV ratings yet.

You got your rich owner SM. Time for Oilers fans to get off that, its 2012, you have the dollar, you have Katz. If you are still afraid of a cap less league maybe the players aren't the problem.
