a team that has drafted, traded and developed players poorly, therefore doesnt have much in the way of salary commitments, will be able to sign those players away from the well run teams because they have more cap room because they did not draft and trade well enough to have anyone to pay.

a team such as that would have picked through and offered contracts to two or three UFA's that they could afford, while having to watch their finances to keep themselves from being in trouble when another of their players' salaries comes up for a raise, while it's possible the team may offer a little more than what the player would be worth anywhere else, it would be more controlled and in line with the rest of the salaries around the league

how is that fair ? how is it fair to break up OTT so that CHI can sign the castoffs ?

would you really call them castoff's if the players were so good that they asked for too much from their current teams? IMO a player that was 'castoff' would be on the lower end of the payscale, thus more likely than not, not as talented as a star player coming off a pretty damn good year
