Look at it from the GM's perspective.

Sign a new player as an RFA. In order to get the other team not to match, he needs to go well above and beyond the going rate for players of similar caliber. And if he succeeds in doing that (possibly putting his own team in cap hell for years to come), there's still the cost of the draft picks as compensation.

It's not collusion. It's asset management.
