Logically? If you only apply it to guys just entering the league, you may as well not apply it at all. By the time those players reach what is now RFA age, the "new" CBA will be the "old" CBA, and it'll be likely that yet another entirely new CBA will be in place. Logically, that makes no sense.
There's going to be a give and a take in the negotiations. The players will certainly be giving up something -- it could be higher UFA age, or a lower salary cap, or both.
