in the NHL, TBY will be able to keep LEcavalier for 13 years, Orlando couldnt keep Shaq in the NBA for more than what, 3 years ?

all TBY has to do to keep Vinnie for the first 5 years is offer him a 10% increase and there is nothing Vinnie can do about it except not play in the NHL. some choice huh.

the NHL CBA is the MOST restrictive in all the leagues, not the least.
