Hasek would be a big exception. Guys like Spezza and the hordes of other young players are still on entry-level 2-way contracts, probably, so it's not like it's any big financial loss.
Besides, it's not as if the NHLPA represents any of these guys anyway. Hasek will retire after this year, he doesn't want to lose a year. Young players and entry-level salaries are the NHLPA's traditional sacrificial lambs. The NHL knows this, and the players themselves should figure it out too eventually. In the meantime, let them play and develop; at least there is this small limit to the madness.
