Teams like the Flyers, Devils or Rangers for example have always been capped teams, yet they always find a way to get around it. If you draft & develop well, make astute trades and signings, then the salary cap is just a puzzle and some GM's are better than others at making the pieces fit.
It's not just about the cap structure it's also about sending a message to other players oin the way to 2nd contracts(DD) that they do their business a certain way. Not sure it's the right or wrong plan but MB has a plan.
