They'd need to get rid of the floor or lower it significantly. Which would sort of defeat the purpose of the whole cap.
'Bad market' teams are good in a sense because they keep players salaries at bay to a certain extent.
The floor should be relative, then it works better. It was 41% at first season after the lockout (23/39mil), now the 16 million gap is relatively only 23% of the 70 million cap.
Let's say, the floor should be 30% of the cap, then it would rise less than the cap and it would nothing but a good and fair system for the teams.
But the greedy players want this 16 million locked gap between cap and floor, because in that system they can get more money. They have kind of an attitude that teams financial problems is not players problem. But their greediness causes the problem.
