indirectly, yes. when you bring in a big name talent for the long term, you'll draw more and more fans to your games, raise revenue, and in turn the cap will rise (an almost insignificant amount).

i'm sorry but posts like this anger me. the cap is directly tied to revenue. the fact that it keeps going up is a good thing because it means that our sport is making more money. now it can be argued that the only reason we're making more money is because ticket prices are higher, not because we have more fans, but to say that the cap ceiling rises simply because teams are willing to shell out expensive, long term contracts to star players is ridiculous.
