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.
The 5 year limit on contracts will affect 90% of the players.
The top 10% will get max contracts.
Instead of 120 million over 13 years you will see more 60 million over 5 years.
This will affect the other 90% huge.
