What is the need for contract length limits? If you agree to a 5% variance from year to year, and reports are that the NHLPA is somewhat likely to agree to this, then "lifetime" deals become much less of an issue.

Why should the players be forced to sacrifice job security because the owners and GMs can't control themselves? You tighten up these loopholes and management will just find some new way to exploit the system and **** themselves. And predictably, they'll come back and try to force the players into conceding some other benefit.
This is why I don't see why its not the PA asking for a longer term. The players will always win out at the end of the deal as long as revenue continues to grow.
