Let them both start their own leagues. It would be the best thing for the fans to have two competitive major pro hockey leagues.
The owners have the venues, the team names that fans already identify with, & TV contract.

The league that the players would start would have the same problem that the WHA has as far as not being able to find places to play.

The players will eventually go where the money is.
