Regardless of whether players' salaries are outrageous or not, if the money that teams save from a cap ends up going to the owners as profits (which they are entitled to take) then it does nothing for the good of the game.
Sure it fills the pockets of the rich revenue clubs, but over all it helps. It helps the snaller clubs compete on the ice. It helps the small clubs remain financial viable. It gives more fans a chance to feel positive about their club, its future and their cup chances. The more clubs the more players get employed (and higher wages through talent dispersal).

So it does help.
