But seriously, not interested in a semantics filed debate about your statement. It's subjective and impossible to prove.

However, every single GM will state the importance of managing the cap properly.
Of course...

The Hawks won the Cup this year and twice in the last 4 years because they've done a solid job drafting & developing (look at all the players they've drafted themselves who were on their last 2 Cup winning teams) and because they've made some astute trades, they've had excellent coaching.

These elements have proved to be a lot more important then the management of their salary cap.

I agree though, every GM states the importance of managing the cap properly...I won't deny that. But they also state the importance of drafting and developing players as well. I happen to think that's WAY more important.

The managing of a salary cap is the easy part...the rest is what's the real challenge.
