As well, it only increases salaries massively because the rookie salary cap decreases salaries massively from their true market value.

Secondly, while players may only be entitled to 10% raises, very few get that, because most players won't accept it. They hold it, causing their team massive harm, until the GM's have no choice but to give in to the players demands.
You mean like Peter Schaefer and Mike Peca?
