Inthink it not expiring in June cost at least 2 weeks of serious negotiating because you would have the pressure point of a bunch of guys not having contracts
Someone on here told me months ago that it's good that the CBA expires in September, because in June/July we wouldn't have long enough for free agent signing period or something. Hopefully now they see what it's like when the CBA expires the week training camp is supposed to start.
