If you want to believe in this Fantasy Island garbage, feel free. It's illegal. The NHL cuts a deal with the NHLPA or the players decertify and the NHL has to operate like 30 separate businesses and the players can work for any of the businesses they want.

If you want to learn something about the topic, google "sports and anti-trust".
