I am against them except in very rare instances (Crosby, for example.) Too many things can go wrong with the top of the list being the player losing his desire to succeed. With shorter term contracts there is always the need to do better for your next contract. If you take that away you might get an unmotivated player. Vinny L. leaps to mind for that reason.
