In an ideal world you'd be right, but it's not about saving 1-2M off the cap, it's to give the best contract offer to the player to make him sign with your club. If a player has two offers on the table, one is 5 years 10M per year, the other is 15 years, 6.5M per years. In the end one contract is worth 50M while the other's worth 97.5M. Easy choice. Not everything revolves around cap management.
