The team should play to win, the coaches should do everything with what they have to win but....the roster could be compiled with very cap friendly players ...This does a lot of things
1) Playing a lot of young players gets them experience
2) By playing a lot of young players you're likely to lose a lot (hence higher draft pick)
3) Free up cap space to become a serious free agent player when the team is ready
