Furthermore, for team owners to not "spend themselves into a hole" there would have to be collusion (ie. teams would have to get together and decide to place limitations on the free agent marketplace that don't exist within the CBA), in which case Donald Fehr would be going to town on the league in a courtroom somewhere right now.
