I hear what you are saying, but overpaying because you have cap space available handcuffs you in the future. Think Briere, what if they gave him 5 a year instead of 4, well next year we will have 1 less million to work with.

Having no cap space but players that will be leaving/retiring, you can manage the cap that way, but to spend to the cap for no reason and have money tied up for no reason... ties your hands later on.
