Is he saying that all contracts are essentially void, and everyone is a free agent? Because **** that noise. Not to mention I want Sidney Crosby nowhere near the Rangers, ever.

EDIT - My apologies if this has been discussed before. I haven't been following this thread as closely as I should be.
Read the McKenzie piece. It makes the lockout illegal. The players say they are ready to play for their individual contracts and if it is held up in court, the owners have to proceed. The CBA is out, when contracts expire everyone is ufa regardless of age, no draft, no cap, no arbitration. Those things that are fundamental and assumed in every cba (proof that the previous one is relative to the negotiation process, why its the basis for negotiating), are gone.
