Talk about getting completely ****ed over.
That's exactly why they should stop playing be fearless leader Fehr's rules and holding out for a "better" deal. Who is it better for? If you take the 5 year maximum now and play hockey or you hold out trying to get the NHL to cave on contract limits and two teams fold, losing 46+ players jobs, was the deal you held out for better for those 46+ players? Or was it better for the top 5% of the league who will actually EVER be offered a deal longer than 5 years in the first place? The whole thing is so logic deprived that I can't fathom it anymore.
