This is a good example of the salary cap leading to less talent in the NHL. Hopefully it will remain a rare case.
EDIT: and off topic, who's the idiot who keeps rating all the threads one star?
Does anyone else see the irony of the N. American hockey league using a centrally planned system (salary cap) and the Russian using more of a free market system for a team's roster based on supply and demand and simple cost/benefit projections?.
Sheesh. What's this country coming to?
