I really doubt ticket prices are much cheaper now than they would be without a cap. Teams are going to set a ticket price the will max out revenue since the cost of running the arena is more or less fixed (its costs the same if 10,000 show up as it does if 20,000 show up).

Caps are only in place to help smaller market teams and probably to secure profit for owners.

That being said I think the cap is going to have to go up enough to be irrelevant or be removed in the near future (same goes for NHL as well).
