Not permanently of course but for the course of the current season absolutely, its not fair that the NHL gets to yank players back against their will just because they finally decided to stop being a$$holes and have a season. I think it should be up to the player which contract he honors for the season if either of his leagues abandon him
Wow, I wish it was this way! There is no way the CBA negotiations would go past the expiration date if it were. Granted, that would give the players a MASSIVE trump card and depending on how many players play elsewhere after the deal expires it could cancel the season dead before it would have a chance to start.
