Under our economic system, businesses that are run well succeed. Businesses that aren't fail.
But contracts are an agreement between two (or more) parties. They also underpin our economic system. Players do not make money unless they've reached a level of performance that secures them an NHL contract. Basically, a player agrees to provide his services (which is playing hockey) and the team agrees to pay him for it.
The problem is that, in your simple view of things, you think these two things are equivalent. They aren't. The reason they work as they do is because that's EXACTLY how they're supposed to work.
