It becomes "pay me and let me find a new career or go overseas". Overseas is a generous option I find because many teams have limits on foreign players.

BTW, liability of a business will never carry over to personal debt. Owners can go bankrupt and walk away billionaires. Just saying.
If the players own the majority of teams after the owners walk away from their NHL franchises I'm not so sure that the players need to go anywhere. I wonder if they'll keep Bettman.
