With this would come increased revenue sharing and contracts being capped at 8 years. I could also see the players also giving up and accepting a 4th year to entry level contracts in exchange for keeping a higher salary.
I'd prefer that they work something similar to this but a more short-term, quickfix... but then right away start negotiating a new CBA with the intention of forming an HRR plan that works better for the NHL and players
