NHL players may not receive their full salaries this year because a lockout could wipe out some, or all of the 2012-13 season
Players do not get paid in a lockout, and for players with large contracts, this could be trouble.
There are some exceptions, however. Salary bonuses will be paid, so Shea Weber will still make $13 million this season, even if he doesn't play a game for the Nashville Predators. Players who are hurt will also be paid until they are fully healthy again.
For veterans, or any player with a large salary that doesn't include huge bonuses, missing paycheck after paycheck will become frustrating at some point.
Let's look at eight players with big contracts who should be worried over a lockout.
