After posting over on the Lottery thread and then the salary cap thread, I've come to the conclusion that the so called small market fan won't be happy until they get every issue go their way. Now, a $35 mil to $45 mil cap with a luxury tax say to $50 mil with revenue sharing still won't help those teams compete. Well as a fan of the Devils, an organization that as reported losses of the last several years and has a bad attendance record, why is that they have been able to compete and have never held a fire sale of their core players. I believe the Devils won the cup in 2003 with a payroll over $50 million. Are they cooking the books or are they a freak of nature. If the Devils can compete, why can't the others?
