/\ True enough, but at he risk of stating the obvious: Why do you think the NHLPA want this so badly? Itís catering to the upper echelon of players who will typically demand 10+ year contracts from a given team or threaten to go elsewhere to sign. Ownerís hand is forced. Short of collusion which is technically illegal, thatís the only way to enforce those ridiculously long contracts.
You can't blame players for seeking the security, but this is clearly milking the system for everything they can get. AKA Greed!
