The "without Fehr in the room" thing is being a tad overblown. Firstly, it was stupid for an owner to say that but D.Fehr knew exactly what was going on in the room, decided the players could get more and shut things down.

The 5 and 7 year thing is really just to idiot proof things for the overspending GM's and owners. 5 or 7 with the 5% variance almost guarentees GM's and agents can't find any loopholes. I think theres some wiggle room if the PA gave in on something else.

If i'm the PA i'd come back to the league with "we're willing to sign a 10yr CBA if we get a year or 2 tacked on to the limits." They'd have a deal within hours if that happened.

Amnesty buyouts and escrow limits are just stall tactics like delinkage. Notice no one is talking about delinkage now.
