Golden Knights win stains NHL once again

BY MARCO    JUNE 15, 2023  (9:35)
What a story the Golden Knights and Quebecers Jonathan Marchessault, Nicolas Roy and William Carrier have told! The team took only six years to win a championship, which is pretty impressive!

However, there's one more fact that taints this fine achievement and the NHL. This is the fourth year in a row that the Stanley Cup winner has gone well over the salary cap. The last two years were even more eloquent.


Let's be clear: this is in no way meant to minimize the great victories of the Lightning, Avalanche and Golden Knights. The players gave their hearts and souls to the cause and deserved their rings.


But will going over the salary cap become a prerequisite for aspiring to top honors? It's a question we have to ask ourselves, because it's no longer an isolated situation; it's becoming a trend, a fashion.
