i said bascially the same thing in the lockout thead, but IMO, i've heard many interpretations of the void part of the file. some say that if means the nhl protects itself so they don't have to pay the players, since the lockout will technically be over after this, when it goes to court (if i'm reading that correctly). another interpretation is what you're saying, that all players would be UFA at the resolution of the lockout, or would be grandfathered in.
i think it would be madness to cancel the contacts and have 700 UFA's. First, the league would never recover, and if it did, teams like columbus and such would be obsolete.
