Or as blinkman pointed out maybe have some form of compensation for signing a guy. Basically whatever happens on this rule will be up to the owners and I don't see the players doing much to stop it if they decide to go the extreme case of as you stated above the players have no choice were to sign(ie I am sure the NHLPA will be willing to use it as a bargainning chip and give it to them in the end).

What i would like to see for both sides

Team holds rights to players till they are of Free agency age(assuming they offered them a contract) and those players are treated as a RFA but for the players side any year over 22 eats up 1 year of entry level deal so if a guy comes into the league at 24 like Anders Lee he already has 2 years of his ELC over with
