Most NHL players don't fear being buried.

I like the move but its not good for players. It's good for redden but no one else right now.
The rule would have kept Souray in the NHL or at least forced a buyout so he could change organizations two years ago. IMO anytime an NHL caliber player is kept out of the league for budget reasons (and in Souray's case, because his team wanted to punish him because of media comments), it's bad for everyone concerned.
