Where some owners/GMs do not seem to be able to exercise any control is in the second contract (after the ELS) and other pre-UFA deals. There's been some discussion of putting a $$ limit and/or term limit on the 2nd contract in the new CBA.
If that's truly the issue, just put a term limit on the 2nd contract. When you're coming off an ELC, no more than 3 years. You don't need to limit everyone to a timeframe. Once you're in (or near) UFA age, remove the time limit altogether. Problem solved.
