Thanks for the information.

Wow! I thought that contracts which were already signed would remain in place. If this was ruled on in favor of the NHL, the players and the teams would both be starting over from square one. It would be a free for all and a total mess.

I imagine that there are players and owners who are sitting on the edge of their seats right now.
