1- cap drop
2- the league is top heavy. Pay for stars. Fill with filler. Young and cheap.
3- cap space increases as season goes on(i think it still does like it used to). So saving 3 mil in cap space for half a season means you can grab a guy at 6 mil halfway through. That 6 mil guy might put you over the top.
4- less perrenial winners. Instead, build and boom. Build and boom. With cap, you need stuff to go right in order to make a run. Might as well let the season progress, then go for boom if you think you have a chance.
5- theres no incentive to spend more unless you know you have a chance. Id rather be a gm that wins one championship every 15 years, but makes money every year holding back cash... rather than a gm that overspends every year and maybe winning 2 cups in 15 years but losing money.
