No NHL contracts are guaranteed though. Would you like the owners to honor the contracts they're handing out? You betcha
Baby. Fact is, they don't have to.
My name is not Sally...haha
and yes, i know all that, and it all makes sense what you said and how you have summarized the recent events...and i agree with you, but the nhl contracts are guaranteed, i am not sure how to word this, but the money on them is dependant on the current cba and how much goes to escrow, i don't know how legally they are written, but unlike the nfl they are guaranteed contracts, just the money is somewhat uncertain by the cba and escrow numbers
