from the Tampa Bay Business Journal,
How do you balance the payroll to field a competitive team, yet stay within the revenue capabilities of the market?
Carefully. We could sign a $4 million defenseman who isn’t worth it that would bring us closer to the cap, but would that make the fans happy? No, we think winning would be the best solution. It’s about fielding the best team we can.
Even with the league taking a year off to institute a salary cap, clubs are still crying poormouth. Will the Lightning be one of them if attendance drops?
Absolutely not. We don’t solely drive income from attendance. Only one-third of our income is based on attendance.
