If every other team had the same payroll limits, they wouldn't be able to offer that much more than the original team. There would be more incentive for the player to stay with his original team.
Contrast that to now, where teams like Toronto, New York and Detroit could offer a superstar $10 million, which is really a slam-dunk incentive for players like Holik, Hasek, etc... to leave their original teams.
