"The Calgary Flames today have about the same payroll as the Detroit Red Wings. The Edmonton Oilers traded for a $7 million player. With plenty of options, Paul Kariya decided Nashville was the place he wanted to play. The Pittsburgh Penguins, a team operated with a miser's touch for the past couple of seasons, suddenly became a free spender.Boy, you sure can say that again.
This was a summer of change in the National Hockey League".
As far as his Top 10 list goes I think I would've ranked Calgary a bit higher.
