If they are really a fan of the game then they know throwing money at players in an attempts to buy a championship is just silly and only rarely does it ever work. This system allows organizational strength to shine through on all levels. From scouting, drafting, coaching and player development teams are forced to make smart business decisions and every team in on a level playing field. It makes for a better NHL and provides a more marketable product to the masses. At least that's how I see it.
