Seems to me, if this was changed, we would have heard grumblings about this from NHL owners DURING the lockout about how much leverage they are losing with RFAs.
Yeah, It does seem a bit odd. We would have heard a lot more about RFA's signing two year deals in Russia with the intentions of coming back to the NHL to become UFA's at age 22-23. I can't see the owners ever agreeing to this.
