But that's not what you signed for if you signed an NHL contract. You signed a contract that the actual payments due under which are dependent upon both the level of HRR and the terms of the CBA in place in each year. None of the contracts the players signed guaranteed them all of the dollars that get thrown around in the media. And the players either knew this going in or they should sue their agents for not doing their job explaining the nature of the contracts they were signing and advising them about the economics of the league and the likelihood of a massively reduced CBA once the current CBA expired.
