In the long-run, you get better quality hockey, because as those sunbelt teams develop, so too will their fanbases, which will then produce grassroots hockey programs, which will recruit more athletes for the sport, thereby improving the quality of the league in the future. The cap facilitates this by creating spending parity among franchises.
