Salary Cap?

I was watching the Blues Rangers games last night and the Blues commentators noticed that with Lundqvist on the bench and Rangers injuries to Gaborik Prospel and Drurry the Rangers had almost a few thousand dollars less out of the line up than the Blues had in it. Do you think the league needs to start to enforce a salary cap or can the NHL survive like the MLB

No cap let the teams spend, let the fans that support their team, reap the reward of seeing better players on their team. From a fans perspective you should get what you pay for.

Where have you been hibernating? There was a lockout and a cap was implemented in your absence. Welcome back.

MLB has heavy luxury tax and huge revenue sharing - the NHL has never been "like that".

I'm not sure how a discussion of a possible salary cap plays out given the current CBA so unless we are given a good reason this one is done.
