So how are you going to pay anyone their full salary without losing your shirt? It's a strange notion, if the NHL is, in fact, offering it.
The players would get prorated salaries of whatever remains of the season at the make it whole level which we would assume is higher than 50/50. Gm0ney I think the key is the contracts would still be linked to HRR so the dynamics of escrow would still be in play to adjust for dips or increases in HRR and how that impacts salary adjustments. Stating it simply the players salaries would still be subject to adjustments visa vie the escrow process. At least that is my take.
