It's an iron-fisted way for the NHL to clamp down on the UFA market.
I get what you are saying, but what is to stop said player from approaching the team and asking for an extension in his final year? Just because it is a 3 year deal doesn't mean they HAVE to leave. Just less guaranteed money/years.
