If people have to sign UFAs to a 2-year minimum, it should bring a bit of realism to the process. Most UFA signings are multi-year deals, after all, particularly for any decent player (Semin being one notably exception that comes to mind).
Maybe there should be something with age too though? I signed Jagr, Malhotra, and Jovanovski to 1 year deals because I have no idea if they'll be getting worse next year (if they don't retire). Then a guy like Kyle Wellwood was signed purely for depth needs, but I don't want him locked into my team for more than one year. I think ruling out one year deals for a certain age and overall could be beneficial, but I don't like the idea of no one year deals in general.
