First off I think an arrangement will be made that both teams can swallow, likely in the 10 year $50 million range. This "loophole" in the CBA is a risk but its there at the moment and its going to be used one way or another, if you don't at least accept the idea of signing these UFA's to long term deals they can find them elsewhere in most cases. If you say you won't take part in signing player to these types of deals you are going to wind up left out in the cold when free agency comes around and you are trying to sign the Jay Bouwmeesters of the world, unless you are willing to give a significantly higher cap hit on a shorter term.
