Is the APHP an idea?
The Association of Professional Hockey Players.
Why couldn't someone start a competitive players association try to recruit players to play in the NHL. Make a collective bargaining agreement with the NHL and off you go.
The concept of blackballing any agent that isn't certified by the NHLPA seems a bit outlandish to me.
What do you think?
As for starting a union now, I don't think there is any problem with that. The CBA has expired, so the clause about negotiating only with the NHLPA probably doesn't apply. As long as the players have contracts with NHL teams, they can quit the NHLPA and form a new association.
I'm not a lawyer though, so there could be more to it than that...
