Those contracts are subject to the CBA, it's the CBA and the CBA alone that binds them. If it were truly an open market, the Rangers, Habs, and Maple Leafs would have all star teams and 80% of the league would have losing seasons. The league would suffer, revenue would go way down and there would be less to go around

The league only works when there's some sort of balance. These contracts are not contracts in the real world sort of way. You don't need to have a CBA at your shop because the shop across the street doesn't care if you go out of business
