are you retarded? really? Salaries are escalating at the high end because of a few stupid owners. So what happens? Teams have to spend to the cap just to field a 1/2 decent team, there is no give right? its a comparable system. If the guys at the top are making 7-8 million it trickles down. So to fill out an entire roster in order to be COMPETITVE you are effectively handcuffed into spending to the cap.
No, salaries are escalating because they are TIED TO REVENUES, which are also escalating.
2/5 of the top spending teams last year didn't make the playoffs, and 1 of them was an 8th seed. Ottawa made the playoffs and there were only 4 teams that spent less than they did. There were only 6 teams that spent less than Nashville. St. Louis finished 2nd in the West, and there were only 7 teams that spent less money then them.
Wow, so a guy moved a team from a crap market to a good one in a league that has much more popularity than the NHL. lol...good comp man...you certainly don't get anything about business valuation. Moreover, you just PROVED MY POINT. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GRIZZLIES, THEY MOVED!!!! DO YOU THINK THERE ARE ENDLESS CITIES LOOKING FOR NHL TEAMS! LMAO . Do you think endlessly moving teams is a good business strategy? lol...omfg.
Oh yeah, Memphis, Tennessee, there's a town that's swimming in money, if I've ever seen one. LOL!
Not only that, the sale is being made at a time when there's still a great deal of uncertainty in the macro-economy. If Heisley had instead sold in '06, who knows what he could've got for them.
And what's wrong with moving franchises, exactly? Atlanta to Winnipeg seems to have worked OK.
wow...just wow...go back to school kid. your arguments are a ball of spaghetti, all over the place, one minute you're arguing a point that has no relevance (bball team), next you are proving my points. lol
i just realized its hard to have an intelligent debate with someone without intelligence.
Reeks of a guy who's just been owned, can't debate, nothing left to say.
