Again, the same can be said of the pro-player side. At least 80% of the players are unaffected by the 5-year limit. Why is this such hard point for the NHLPA?
The only answer can be is that a small minority of players still want long term contracts as a way to allow cap circumvention.
I am not buying Fehr's rhetoric on it hurting the "middle class" players.
