Yep, fine with me.

Imagine explaining to your kid or a novice fan why their favorite players switch teams every three years.
I don't think the turnover would be as drastic as some fear. Most non-star players are already on 3-year or less contracts anyway. And star players typically want to stay with their team.

In the end, I don't care a whole lot. I would like to see a limit. And in general, the shorter the better.

Careful, the players union might put a hit out on you.

I hate how much turn over the NFL has, I think this would be twice as bad. I just don't see enough positives. 5 year max? that would be low enough.

The NFL has a million other dynamics at play though. I don't think the two are very comparable. And I'd expect there to be less turnover in the NHL than in the NFL. I think there are more forces in hockey that compel guys to stay, in general, than there are in the NFL.

Heck, given some of the hacks in adult league hockey, I'll probably just get cross-checked in the back of the neck this weekend.
