Contract lengths to just 5 years

Elimination of Arbitration

pushing the UFA age to 28 years old.

Vaariance of annual salary just 5% year over year.

Sorry, but Money is not everything.
And those things could have been negotiated upon in October, had Fehr been interested in negotiating. By not even trying to negotiate to save an 82 game season we have no idea what the players could have gotten when it comes to contracting.
