I, too, believe that players - absent some negotiation to the contrary once a CBA is in place - will lose a year on their contracts. However, are you sure they run date-to-date, as opposed to season-to-season. I was debating with someone as to whether the contract states discrete dates (i.e., October 1, 2005 - July 31, 2006 vs. simply 2005-2006). Any help, links, etc. you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
