Probably, similar to how the NFL player's probably would have had they not settled. I think the NHL will settle as well just to avoid taking a PR hit in the teeth.

This is just an unsolvable problem though. These are inherently dangerous sports, and creating a "safe" version may not resonate with the general fanbases. I feel bad for the players, but it's hard to believe that anybody who has played either football or hockey was unaware of the potentially life-changing injuries that you can get playing those sports, or that taking blows to the head repeatedly was bad for your health.
