High end proven superstar players will get their money and the only losers here will be fringe second liners who don't have first line natural talent. Seeing as they're not impact players, they'll be signed in late July and will only receive a fraction of a superstar player; that's the way I see it happening.
That's pretty much how I see it. More bad contracts out there, except now to guys who really haven't earned them, instead of to guys who've proved their worth through consistency over the years.
While I can see where this could possibly make teams think twice before offering a Gill-like contract, I don't see where it helps to give the younger guys unearned contracts. In other words, it doesn't seem like this would help make teams more responsible in their spending.
So you're saying there's a chance!
