So, hypothetically, if the league never goes back into operation, but never technically folds, NBC would be on the hook for a full ten year deal, even if they never air a single broadcast?

I'd assume the NHLPA will insist on language addressing it in the CBA, in the event the whole season is lost. Otherwise, they would be looking at a year down the road with no TV money to split, and the owners already pocketing the cash. If I'm the NHLPA, whatever share the owners think they are getting is being docked the full TV contract, with interest.
