Here is what the CBA says:

49.5 Sources of Funding for Player Compensation Cost Redistribution. The funds
required to be collected for Player Compensation Cost Redistribution in a League Year
shall be collected as follows: First, from excess centrally generated League revenues, if
any; next, up to one-third (⅓) of the remaining balance from the Escrow Account, if there
is an Overage in a League Year, provided, however, that any funds taken from the
Escrow Account shall be limited to funds attributable to the Players on the ten-highest
revenue Clubs that had an Actual Club Salary for such League Year in excess of the
Midpoint of the Payroll Range for that League Year; and finally, any remaining amount
of necessary funding to be split fifty (50) percent from the Playoff revenues of all Clubs
that participate in the Playoffs Qualification Round (if any) and the Stanley Cup Playoffs,

and the other fifty (50) percent from certain revenues of the ten-highest revenue Clubs,
based on such Clubs' non-playoff revenues.

Guess it depends on whether the excess league revenues covered the needs.
