I don't understand the rush with these contracts. Wouldn't it be better to wait for the new CBA and hope for a 5 year entry level deal?
Don't think these kids drafted in 2012 would be affected by a change in ELC length in a new CBA since they were drafted while this current CBA was still in place. It would be starting for the 2013 crop.
And at most, I see the PA agreeing to 4 years on the ELC's.
