I'm sure I didn't explain that well. A higher cap doesn't give the players more HRR, they are tied to the 50% + 300m make whole. The increased cap number keeps the market conditions the same so that players that need contracts in the next couple years aren't paying more of a burden.
That's why I'm not a fan of 60m cap. It should have be paused at a higher number and let every thing work itself out in time. It'd have been so much easier to arrange this before last season ended.
