Money is held independently in escrow until negotiations are complete. Both sides can agree to modifications to the CBA in any year even without the stop points.
Feel free to shoot this down.
since the players dont use the strike process (yet)
then it comes down to whether Bettman and owners want to give up their biggest club to forcing their agenda....
bottom line------ no way the NHL ever agrees to that
