I could also see it happening, which is disheartening.
Just business. What makes it easier in giving up the future players is that they are not yet your brothers in arms. They are nameless and faceless. Let them fight for theirs when it's their turn.

This is pretty much in any labor contract. It's the easiest and fastest way of reaching an agreement.
Rookie salary range is perfect example. In private industry could be less money or even benefits until seniority is gained. Even ability for promotion. It's all negotiable. What the one constant is that it will be heavily weighted to the incumbent bargaining unit members.
