The only entity that benefits is the Player himself.

Because the current NHL proposed method forces a third contract into the mix when there's no legitimate reason for players to concede that point. There are plenty of salary restraints in the system already, as a whole. You shouldn't have to mandate it down to the level of every single player. That's why you have GMs-- to assess and valuate talent properly.

The ones who consistently fail shouldn't be rewarded by restricting player options unduly.
