Spare us the tirade, I have feeling this is going to turn religious.

(ok maybe I made it go in that direction)
Well contracts do automatically chain parties together, that's the point of a contract (a legally binding commitment agreed between the parties), but yes, it's conditional. If Berger is not good enough or surplus to requirements which appears to be the case and he violates the contract, but no performance is expected on him, there's no issue. Now if he suddenly decided he wanted to play for another AHL team this would be another story, but that's not the case.
