Ouch!! That was a low blow, Alec! While I like to think we have all the greatest players, others certainly don't. No, there is no cap in hockey. The New York Rangers have an exhorbitant payroll, something like 77 mil, ( and they still cant win ), while there are others like the Wild who are down in the 30's I think? The Avs are one of the higher salaried, but not like some of the others.
And to answer your question, of course I like to have all the talent we have and see others wallow in misery. =) Although, just like football.....any given day, the best teams can and do lose to the worst teams.
