It seems only the big budget teams have offered FAs these long term front loaded contracts. If you put a limit on the term, more teams can compete for these game-changing FAs (on a "more" level playing field)
the islanders are a big budget team ?
My understanding was this was being asked to kill front loaded contracts, but as you mention this could allow for more FA's to switch teams independently of the variance of their contract. Thanks, I had not thought of that.
