The Ottawa Senators as run by Eugene Melnyk. 

After acquiring a bunch of players whose bonuses were paid by other teams or getting players with back-diving contracts (plus only having to pay 20% of the salary of their IR players):

Quote
their roster counts $60,130,833 against the cap while it actually will cost them approximately $45,697,500 in real money.

I would just be positively shocked if the NHL didn't act to stop teams from "violating the spirit of the cap" when it involved teams trying to save money rather than violating the spirit in the service of spending it on players.

Shocked, I tell you.

Maybe Reggie Dunlop can be a player/coach. They'd save money there too.

Sens are doing nothing against the rules so all the power to them. Fans will suffer but they don't have to go or watch. I have zero issue with it. Also have no issue with teams like the Leafs who can spend.

I don't have an issue with it either. I feel bad for the senator fans I know. There isn't many, but there's a few left out there. They all seemed to have retreated into the woodwork since the Alfredsson, Heatley, Spezza days.
