Why?

What is the issue if the CBA has a salary cap does it matter how each team chooses to spend it?

This option is to simply protect the GM from themselves....I say if the NHL wants 5 and the PA wants nothing and 7/8 year term is fair.

The other issue is the 5% variance on contracts amount per year....If the amount that changes per year is not an issue it allows a team to defer salary to other years.....I say as long as you have to account for the salary no matter what happens, Buy out, retire etc.....then the yearly amount should not be a concern.
