So what difference does it make?? I'd much rather overspend to keep homegrown talent than overpay for UFA's
Well if you don't have those RFAs locked up to cheaper deals you won't be able to overpay as much on those free agents.
At the end nothing changes, we will be a cap team. Same amount of cash will be dished out. But how that cash is distributed among the players is important.

To maximize talent, you need that homegrown talent signed for cheaper, so you can overspend when you have no choice but to do so. You hit the UFA market and you will have to overpay, there's no way around it.
Your homegrown talent though, you don't have to overpay there. And the least money overspent there means more cash for the open market.
