I think the star players will get their money regardless, and everyone below them will be forced to slot in wherever they can. The lower they can push their cap hits, the more room there is for everyone below them to get a bit more. And the players know that fans aren't going to look at the actual salary paid every year, but will look at where their team sits against the cap. So even if someone is shelling out $65m in actual dollars, if their cap hit is only $55m, their fans will be wondering why they aren't spending that extra $10m.

I think variance is a bigger issue to more players than its made out to be.
