It's an odd thing. Logically speaking, any player with confidence in his ability to not suck should love the rule. More money available to them given the same share. Any player not confident should be so-so on it; on the one hand, there's the risk of being sent down and playing in the AHL with fewer amenities etc. On the other hand, while doing so you don't pay anything into escrow.

Like I said, if the players want the extra security wrt quality of life vs. the extra money, more power to them.
