In order for the poor teams to acquire star players, they compete against the rich teams who have enough money to offer very large contracts.

And that is the
reason that a cap needs to be in place. It gives the non hockey market teams a fighting chance to be competitive and grow their fan base.
Maybe having a team that can't pay their players isn't a good idea, either move said team to a market that can sustain a NHL franchise or contract the league, its ******** to base league revenues around teams that are in unviable markets. This isn't the player's fault, it's Bettmans.
