The 'make whole' provision coming out of the player's share is meant to divide the players. Both sides are using the divide and conquer strategy.

Lower paid players have less salary to be made whole, while top paid players would lose a lot more. (for example, 10% of $1M is 100K, 10% of $5M is 500K) Coming out of the players share means less HRR to be put towards determining the new cap ceiling for the next season. That affects higher paid players more, since a lower cap means less options and more downward pressure on new contracts.
