Not really. The cap is still a cap. Even in the free market (no cap) system, the teams that spent the most weren't always great or even good teams. It is insane to force franchises who can't afford it to spend to a certain level. On the other side, why penalize a team that could play "Moneyball" and build a solid team with a few more ELC's than the average team and a sprinkle of value-priced veterans? Without the floor there would be many more good veteran players in the bargain bin because teams wouldn't have to pay them $3.5 million to make the floor.
