Player Agents Look At The New CBA

from Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal at The Sporting News,

While many executives were still sorting through the terms of the new collective-bargaining agreement last week, NHL player agents don’t expect dramatic changes to player contracts under the deal.

“The system is really the same,” said Neil Sheehy, president of ICE Hockey Agency and agent to a number of NHL star players, including defenseman Ryan Suter, who signed a 13-year, $98 million deal with the Minnesota Wild last July. “How does it change my life? It really doesn’t that much. It means I can’t do a 13-year deal. I can do a seven-year deal or an eight-year deal.”
