The new CBA would have to state a % roll back of contracts across the board to change any individual contract. The only reason this can happen is because all individual contracts are governed by the current CBA. With that said when you sign a contract that is governed by a CBA and there is something like the HRR that the NHL has you individually are not signing for a percentage of that you are signing for a set dollar value.
If the HRR is raised, as it has been every year that the cap goes up, your contract value does not go up.
What you are saying is that if I sign a contract for 2 million a year and the HRR is raised 10% for the next year then the following year my salary would go up 10%.
