If it's a contract that was for 4 years, and they started the contract in 2002, then it would not expire until 2007 if there is a complete season missed next year.

This is a novice interpretation of the events, but you might want to research the Blake/Sakic contracts and stories.
I recall the same explanation at the time they were signed. I think there were one or two others that followed the same model. I remember Bettman apparently being quite pissed over the whole thing.

Geez you have a good memory.
