My guess is that the mechanisms of the expired CBA would still be in effect.
The NHL would issue it's Preliminary & Final HRR report as usual - excluding the revenues from the cancelled playoffs.
The Preliminary HRR Report would be used to calculate a hypothetical reduced cap for the following season.
The Final HRR Report would be used to calculate the Players Share and escrow for the strike shortened season - with the players giving back through escrow due to the reduced HRR. It is possible/likely that the owners would keep all the collected Escrow and the players would have to make add'l payments back to the owners.
