... He's the pro. To think we'd be dotting the I's and crossing the Ts without him in the room is absurd."

absolute garbage. He is so extreme it's not even funny.

People like him is why this has gone on so long!

Why do you care about contracts longer than 7 years(what the owners are offering for resigning own player) malhorta? you've probably never gotten one longer than 3 years!

everything else is so insignificant i dont know why they wouldnt just give it to the owners and end this.

You could argue variance, but what else is a big issue for the players? 20-30 players are on a contract longer than 7 years(ok 5 if you're a UFA, but you can still do sign and trades with this). Why are they fighting tooth and nail to get 8+ years?
