But that's all it is really...optics. These contracts had to happen, you needed to lock the guys up. It happens every year there is tons of money being thrown out for UFA and RFA. The owners (and players), despite how flawed it was, HAD to operate on the last CBA. I fail to see how those contracts have ANYTHING at all to do with CBA talks...
