I'm VERY surprised that I would have to explain this to people. It appeared to me as common sense.

The league CANNOT punish teams for signing contracts that the nhl itself signed off on. It just doesn't make sense.

There is NO WAY that these contracts will be retroactive.
Leaf fans are just clinging to this for the moment because they've been humiliated by the GM they stubbornly defended... and now they're trying to save face.
You don't recall the league signing off on many contracts the past several years then retroactively taking action upon them? The Leafs themselves had one.
