MLB doesn't have a hard cap becuase the union is so strong. Too strong in my opinion. The NBA has a cap, but there are loopholes that teams have exploited, but at least they have a cap, which includes a max salary.

The fact that the NFL has a HUGE revenue source is a stronger argument that supports the owners. The NHL (as a whole) just doesn't have the money NOT to have a cap.
