I'm hoping for the same reason you are. We're trading for a stud player or two?

Fingers crossed.

The way I understand it is for 5 yrs but can (more than likely) be voided by either party after 2.

You can be sure ol' Rogey boy will be banning this practice soon. I believe this is the third contract they've done with the dummy years tacked on, Fairley and Kruger being the others. I think it's pretty brilliant, which is of course the very reason he'll outlaw it.

It gives flexibility. They may not be done making moves and anything not used get rolled into 2017 cap.
