One of the very same reasons we are in a shortened season.
Hockey is a TEAM sport, if you want to cut your own throat and fight the team you are supposed to be working with you will not get far in this game. Selfish players find this out in a hurry when they sign a deal that handcuffs their owners. Becoming a burden on the team due to your own greed is not an enjoyable experience I would imagine. I wonder how Bryzgalov feels right now knowing he might be bought out and never get another contract.

Ofcourse it is a free market but there is a salary cap in place and your pay effects everyone on your team.
