If the Richards, Suter, or Parise contracts weren't voided I doubt this one does. Same concept, just bigger dollar amounts.
OK that makes sense. In any event, the NHL won't be rejecting this contract. I would imagine that they are stuck. If they reject it they create some ill-will with the PA during a time when they don't need that. If they don't reject it they lose leverage if the owners want to claim they aren't making enough money.

Philly is pretty good at putting people between a rock and a ****ing hard place.
