It could potentially help parity.

Say the Panthers aren't willing to get Komisarek at 4.5m, but are okay to get him in a deal if the Leafs pay half his salary... Komisarek could potentially rebound and be good for the Panthers while not being overly expensive.

Also, don't forget that a rich team trading away cap space will have equally as much of their cap space used for NO player. Just dead cap weight, if that make sense. That doesn't help them get better. They'll just get a replacement player for cheaper. Doesn't mean they'll get better.
