From everything I understand, the contracts have something written in them that makes them contingent on the CBA that is signed, so if the CBA contains a clause where Escrow takes money away then the contracts are still valid.

I agree with you in principle but in reality if you want the NHL to play anytime soon, you better hope the PA comes off the "make whole" clause. Just like you better hope the NHL stops trying to take away players contract rights (ELC length, Arbitration, UFA Age).

I'm tired of arguing principle, it's why we are here. Lets talk reality and what needs to get done to have NHL hockey back on the ice.
