Read: Looking At How The NBA Made Their Contracts Whole and Other Things The NHL Can Take From The NBA

In the NY Times, Jeff Klein writes about how the NHL could try and follow the same model that the NBA did in making sure that the contracts that those players signed were paid in full.

Klein writes that the new CBA said that contracts signed before the expiration of the old CBA “shall continue to be calculated in accordance with the salary cap rules that were in existence at the time the contract was entered into.”

Other details from the new NBA CBA from last year are:

  • BRR went from 57-43 for the players to 51-49 for the players
  • Revenue sharing money tripled
  • Teams must spend at least 85% of the cap for two years and then 90% of the cap
  • 5 year contract limit
