If they take actions that are clearly in violation of the law, then I'll be on the phone and speed dial my lawyer and seek remedies.

In this case, the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL and NHLPA has been terminated by one party in a manner that is completely legal under the laws of Canada and the United States. It seems to have been done in a rather sloppy, shoddy, and somewhat angry manner - but a perfectly legal manner, nevertheless.

Paying premium property fees/rent which in turn go to helping the NHL team build new arenas? Even if they are, almost every lease, property purchase agreement, business license, or other commercial contract has attachments, clauses, and so on specifying that third parties are not entitled to any benefits, claims, or damages from the said contract.
I could not have said it better myself. If only I had taken the time to read down this far before replying, I would have been able to save myself the time of writting all my posts of the NHL and NHLPA and they not having any duty to third party beneficiaries.
