DO PLAYERS LOSE CONTRACT YEAR ON A LOST SEASON?

Thanks for the post. There's a decent list of players we may not see on the ice again. I thought it was a shame not seeing Scott Stevens again after the last lockout.

I think the author missed Marty Brodeur on his list of players who may retire if this year is lost.

Will Carolina fans really miss Semin if there's no season this year?

Wow, I knew that the players didn't get paid their salary, but I thought in return that ment that the contract came to a stand still as well. The thing that hurts the NHL even more is that this gives the NHL more bargaining power in negotiations because eventually the lockout will is going to have a severe impact on players not making money, especially those who aren't able to get jobs playing else where.

Also check out my blog post on players who might not get to play again because of the lockout here: http://www.hockeyforums.net/index.php/blog/46/entry-440-the-lockout-a-forced-retirement/

I don't know if anyone saw this...

I found this on TSN. It explains how the years in the contract are affected by the lockout. It'll be sad not to see Kimmo play again.

I can see Holmgren bringing Timonen back on a 1 or 2 year deal but with a cap hit of $2.5 or $3 million instead of the $6.3 million now. There's going to be lots of players in the same boat as Timonen.
