Kukla's Korner Hockey

There is clearly no end to the madness, nor will there ever be. No matter what the NHL does, it will always be thus. Their need to control spending has created a salary cap situation that has helped almost nobody but the players. It has created far more headaches than it has ever solved, forces teams to spend to a salary floor that wouldn’t even be close to their budget if they could spend as little as they wish and has done almost nothing for competitive parity. Yes, Horton signed with the small-market Columbus Blue Jackets. But the reality is it was more about him wanting to play in a city where he could live a more anonymous lifestyle than anything else. The fact is, the salary cap has not been responsible for one ounce of whatever parity there is in the league these days.
