Another middle finger to Gary Bettman by ownership. The NHL proposes 5 year contract term limits and getting rid of salary arbitration so teams run to give out long term extensions when the player has a year remaining in entry level and the player has no leverage when the SPC expires. Then people rip the union for refusing to negotiate and don't want to discuss changes in contracts. Fehr wants teams to negotiate with the players and determine the contract terms. Bettman and the owners have proposed changes to contracts. Boston gives Seguin 6 years with the CBA expiring on Saturday. Jacobs is one of the key owners who doesn't want more revenue sharing. Cue the laugh track.
