It'd be nice to get the opinion of a Quebec labour lawyer to see what the chances are of this succeeding. Anybody on these boards in labour law? I'm a lawyer but I have little to no expertise in this field. I have a feeling the Quebec labour relations board will find a way to say they do not have the jurisdiction to make an order OR they will say that the fact that the NHLPA is not certified in Quebec is not a valid reason for avoiding a lockout because it is the NHLPA itself that has chosen not to be certified in the province of Quebec.

If they labour relations board does find in favour of the players, the Canadiens will start to put pressure on Bettman to get this thing resolved and I'm sure they'll find something for the players to do in the meantime (ie. guided tours by actual Canadiens anyone?)
