Disagree with the first part. Players should accept what the owners do to remain successful. If they don't like it then they can "get out" no one is forcing them to play in the NHL.
I agree with the second part. i would prefer the 5% rule and you can sign a contract for as long as you want. That being said, the cap hit should remain after the player retires or gets sent down.
