The NHL's answer to overspending on players is to limit the earning potential of all players. Sidney Corsby is worth every penny he's being paid, both to the Pens and the league and in fact he's probably worth much more. Rather than take responsibility for signing contracts that make sense for your team, the NHL wants to limit contract length, take away free agency eligibility and arbitration rights. Asking for a reduction in the players percentage of HRR is reasonable, asking players to limit their earning potential so that teams don't have to be fiscally responsible is not.
