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.
Agreed but I highly doubt many of those changes will occur.

maybe a soft cap of 10 years, but UFA and arbitration rights wont be changed, or at least wont be accepted by the PA. It's ultimately the variance that is important there.
