Wordage in the contract doesn't cover everything, several times things have been in contracts that haven't covered what they intended for any number of reasons.

Simply put the contract is so that NBC could broadcast X number of games. A judge could easily rule that the NHL by not playing the games violated the contract and no wordage can save them from that breach. Plus it's not a road the NHL wants to even think about going down. NBC is literally the only network the NHL could find to broadcast it, lose out on that and the NHL loses billions of dollars and can't afford to risk it.
