I could be looking too far into it but it seems strange to me that one payroll goes up and the other seems to be slowly rolling backwards in terms of cap hit. It's 2013 and I realize there is a cap but we are not even in the top ten for payroll and not in the top 10 in wins.
It could also be that Ilitch has always had even before the salary cap era a self imposed salary cap of around 60 million with the exception of 2002. I guess we will see if they go over 60 next year.
Teams that used to be nowhere near the talent level as Detroit are now spending more than we are.
It's rediculous the amount of money he is spending on the Tigers vs the Wings
I am a Wings slappy but I truly believe they will not make the playoffs this year. A spade is a spade.
