Going from a collectively bargained atmosphere towards the "Wild West" goes both ways.
Things like guaranteed contracts, the pension, travel and meal allowances, etc., all become open to whatever a player can negotiate, and as I understand it every player (including rookies) would effectively be a UFA if not under contract.
IMO, star players, and potential star players, would really cash in, and 80% of the league would be making significantly less than they do now.
