If a GM said, "if you take a lower salary in 2014 I can sign 3 other stars for a lower salary in 2014 and we'll have a great shot at the Cup" you might just do that. Or, "I'll give you a huge salary for the first two years if you agree to a much lower salary after that once I have to sign my stars on their ELCs".

You can't do this in the current system because the cap hit is an average of total salary/years, the year to year salary doesn't matter.
