I don't understand what the rush is to lock players up before the CBA expires, unless you are trying to sign a deal over 5 years.

Worst case scenario, players have exactly the same leverage they do now. They very well could have less (arbitration eligibility and UFA age), making the new-CBA deals cheaper.

I think Sather played it well. Only potential exception is McD; personally I would not mind locking him in. But I get that that is not his style, and I think it is better to err to far this way than too far the other way (locking players into big deals too early).
