You didn't address my concerns with long term deals at all. How is paying Joe Blow $7M a year for 15 years good for the game, and the revenue of the league? What happens when Joe Blow busts his knee and can't play at that high level again, yet doesn't retire. Is paying him $7M a year for the next 14 years good for anybody, besides that player?
You want no restrictions on contract length, then you have to get rid of guaranteed contracts.
Does a BILLIONAIRE OWNER really need a rule in place to stop him offering a 7 year contract??? Just don't offer the damn thing in the first place...problem is the OWNERS offer these contracts and then say "Hey that contract is too long or too much" HYPOCRITES!!!
An don't say well if they don't do it that they can't compete! Ryan Suter is a great D but far from worth 10M...Minnesota would have been better off with 2 $5M D than 1 $10M D...that is their own fault!!! Even if you think that they still need to do that to compete, you don't financial bankrupt your team because you have to win. Its a gamble...you either try to win and pay the price or you take a different approach maybe win and save yourself financially!!!!!!
