It depresses the market. Creates a new normal. Bottom six guys won't see three- and four-year deals anymore. Two years instead. The new normal will be shorter deals for all. I know you and Schmidt don't buy it but I'm convinced.
Cap the years at 8, maybe even 7, and it's not an issue. No more retirement contracts and no effect on the other guys. 5 years is lunacy.
Yeah, just don't see the players agreeing to go from no limit to 5 or 6 years. Not happening imo. Perhaps 7 or 8, but even that is asking them a lot.
