<"The final four teams in both the N.B.A. playoffs and the baseball
<playoffs were the ones with the highest payrolls," said Checketts,
<whose Knicks fit in the basketball subset. "But hockey's a different
<sport. You can't expect to just spend money and produce results."
As usual that is a total lie from Checkettes, the Flyers, Wings and
Stars are three of the highest payroll teams in the sport, the Leafs
are not bad either in terms of spending and winning.
In hockey its more apparent that ever before, only his Rangers are
the exception to that rule.
