Would depend on the new CBA's transition rules. Under the past CBA transition rules all rookie contracts like Yakupov's that would have commenced in the canceled 2004-2005 season slid.
CBA Exhibit 16, 4(a)
For purposes of determining "slides" for the 2004-05 cancelled season, the
following rules shall apply: (1) All Entry Level SPCs that "slid" in 2003-04, will
be deemed to have "slid" for 2004-05; (2) All Entry Level SPCs that did not
"slide" in 2003-04, will be deemed not to have "slid" in 2004-05; and (3) All
Entry Level SPCs entered into prior to the expiration of the Expired CBA, with a
term scheduled to commence with the 2004-05 season, will be deemed to have
"slid" for 2004-05.
