I don't see why the players should have to "get anything." They are getting the benefit of shorter contracts, which helps most of them.

But I agree I think 5 years is a bit too short. There is also something to be said for a team being able to maintain stability with it's stars. That is also good for the product.

I'd go with 7 years like the NFL does.
