Let the players just throw away job flexibility. Why don't they just agree to be tied down to the teams that drafted them forever?

It's about getting the fairest deal possible. Fehr is trying to do that right now, no way in hell the players ever agree to 5 year maximum contracts. There's no job security there.

The owners offered one of their accept it or **** off proposals. NHL, or every organization, feels like they can just bully around the workers, or in this case, the players. Players are tired of that happening again, and again. Aside from media ********, Fehr is getting the best deal possible to the players, and news break, that's what he is getting paid to do.
