The plight of NHL players’ finances likely are not uppermost in your mind. But even though it may feel as if the world has come to a complete halt, it has not. Business grinds on even if the season does not.

In that vein, the NHL has informed the NHLPA that revenue losses could range from the best-case low of a couple of hundred million dollars to a worst-case amount of up to one billion dollars, The Post has learned.

With that information, the PA conducted a call in which participants were informed of union calculations that 2019-20 escrow would increase by 4-percent under a best case scenario but surge to an additional 21-percent under the worst case scenario that presumably would be represented by outright cancellation of the season and the playoffs, according to a well-placed source.

This increase would be added to the 14-precent escrow deductions from paychecks throughout the season. In other words, the best-case scenario as presented by the league would mean that players would receive 82-percent of the face value of their contracts while the worst-case scenario would leave players with a net 65-percent of their deals.

The season is approximately 85-percent complete. The discrepancy reflects a combination of the 6-to-10 percent of revenue generated by the playoffs and the fact that a full playoff would come at the cost of the remaining 15-percent of the season that would not be played. No wonder the players are pitching the idea of resuming the season in some form and playing for the Stanley Cup in August and September.

NHL teams are obviously losing a considerable amount of revenue during he league’s “pause” that went into effect on Mar. 11. The players, who agreed to escrow as the controlling force of the hard cap split, are entitled to 50-percent of designated Hockey Related Revenue. That is why they are going to take this kind of a hit. Of course, teams’ expenses are significantly lower during this emergency, but that has no connection to the CBA.

The participants on the conference call discussed options dealing with the updated escrow information and, according to a source, are mulling various alternatives that will be discussed with the full membership in an upcoming call.

These include, a) taking this year’s escrow and rolling it into next year; b) returning the refund still due from the 2018-19 season once the financials are reconciled; c) adding the projected escrow increase to the two paychecks still owed the players for this season; and, d) deferring the escrow over a period of years when the new television-rights deals kick in after being negotiated.

Of course, a few of these choices would have impact on players who are not even in the league this year. But there are no good solutions for the players here, locked in by their 50-50 revenue partnership with the league.
