It will not have any impact on lower tier players because those players would never get a 5 year deal in the first place. This is the problem with Fehr and the current negotiation, Fehr is representing only a small amount of players. The ones who are filthy rich who are making 8-10 mil a year. He isn't representing a 4th liner or a fringe NHLer. These guys just want a deal and play to make a living. Out of the 750 players probably 100-200 are actually being represented right now.
If there is only a small percentage of players involved why are the owners making such a big deal out of it?
Give the stars the star treatment and give the depth players their due.
Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
