Yes, I get you there, but I had been projecting ahead for the entire length of the new CBA. Each subsequent year there will be some residual contracts to make whole, till they all lapse. The annual amount owing will be less as league revenues grow, but I had projected the compounded total to be closer to 450 mill. Of course, my understanding of what Bettman has offered may be off (as might my math!)
