It also helps players even though they probably don't want to admit it - especially with the cap floor in the picture. How many teams would drop their pay rolls to Miami Marlins levels without that floor?

And who is being restricted by a $70 million cap? That's $3Million/player? A $59Million cap (Roughly 2010 numbers - which is where the new cap is probably going to settle for the first part of the CBA) is still $2.6Million/player on a 23 player roster.
