I don't believe they are "losing" money in the long term, definitely in the short term though.
None of us know what this is going to cost the players in the short or long term until a new CBA is in place. Recchi's comments were bang on though in that the longer this goes the worse it's going to get for the players. He might be retired and "well off" but he also lost more money then most of us will never know because CBA BS and knows that is money you will never get back.
