The question of the day is, is the fact that they have a lease with the city for the arena imply that the team in under the responsibility to fill the arena? If that can be proved, the disagreement between the NHL and NHLPA will be in violation of the arena leases. Alot of it will depend on the wording of the contract of the teams lease, and that will be where it can be attacked in the courts, and thus applying pressure.
