In 2004, when there was a lockout, NHL players on ELS deals (and those signed for AHL depth) were allowed to play on "NHL" contracts in AHL.

As it stands today, no Sharks player (who spent significant time on NHL roster this past season) is on ELS contract.

However, the NHLPA believes there is reason to believe a deal will be done in a timely fashion, so that this post may be superfluous.
One could only hope, as I'm sure we all do. However, I've seen some strange things occur in my relatively short life.
