Might as well refer to it as the Redden rule.

I have to say... that one makes sense. It's quite simply a way to allow rich teams to bury mistakes, which poor teams can't afford to do. I favor that loophole closure in a capped environment.

Now five-year contracts max, and four-year rookie deals? That's a starting point and not an end point, I'll bet, if the NHL really wants 82 games. I'd wager they end up at the same three-year ELC, and seven years maximum, maybe, with more restrictions on the deviation in any one year compared to other years in the deal.
