Not sure it would be horrible for "most" of the players, certainly the bottom end 4th liners and 5-6 defencemen would have issues. But a smart agent would ensure a player's individual contract would contain conditions that would hopefully, in the main, be as beneficial to his client as the current CBA allows. Its your latter points though that would see the NHL fight decertification tooth and nail, if it came to it.
