Cap space has absolutely no value by itself. It's all about what you can do with it. And it happens that Bergevin can use it to sign good players this year.

Might I add 'hypocapspaceophobia' to the diagnostic?
The cap is not going up as much as people think, because of a significant drop in the value of our dollar.
