But then they would deserve it. As of right now, a star hockey player gets as much as a good reliever in baseball. "Merit" has no part in this. Salary caps don't pay players what they could get in the market or "deserve"; it suppresses salary artificially. To wit a star NFL player makes what an average MLB starting outfielder makes, despite the fact that the NFL generates more revenue.
