Like the no more cap circumvention. Very favorable to sharks standard operating procedures in the long term. To me, this change makes us a huge player in the new UFA market. Our team is attractive to most players, but when we can only offer up a 5 year deal versus a 10-12 with a huge signing bonus, most will take their talent elsewhere. Now, our contracts are competitive and we have a winning history, and most players recommend the franchise. see: seto etc.. This also ties in with contract length limit as well. It will be a lot harder for teams to drop a 7 year contract on someone with less salary variance than ever. so we wont see as many long term contracts except for special cases...at least in theory.
