Take my team for example. I have 1.62m under the soft cap, so in the free agency period I can sign players up to 6m, not 7.62m
This is technically completely false scully. Every team has the MLE counted towards its Cap and if you are under the cap you can use it, or waive it. You are correct in saying that if you are less than 6 million under you can't combine the two thus creating the loophole effect, but your wording is off.
