I think this is just a ruse on the part of owner, as they have no reason to be against long contracts. They are playing politics of some sort.

They may be thinking that if fewer players get long contracts, the union will be weaker come next lockout.
In a sense I suppose that's true but when a relationship goes stale (Gomez) how much is it COSTING the team to do a merry dance around a lost soul?

Markov wasn't even a long contract but with his injury history how much did it ultimately cost (player moves, medical, etc) to keep the team competitive and retain his services, or should I say non-services?

It's easy to look at the numbers you can see. But the numbers "behind the scenes" are the questions few of us have answers to calculating.
