This is one of the most tired arguments on this board. Do you really think, for example, if Ilya Kovalchuk hits free agency he's going to be sitting there thinking about Wade ****ing Redden and then reject an offer from NY?

If anything, your argument will make older players think twice about signing lucrative or long term contracts for fear of losing their game and being buried in the minors.. and that's only a good thing for the league moving forward.
