Well, I don't know if that would really happen, but I could see it subtly helping Molson to ultimately "win championships" if he decided to be at least somewhat cooperative with the players, if they did get their ruling. I mean, it's not like the Habs are one of the teams which is driving this labour impasse in the first place. It's rich vs. poor in many respects, and the Habs are "rich". If he has to pay the players anyway, he might as well make the franchise look good by not doing anything additionally petty in terms of denying ice/facilities/etc or voicing complaints about it. Show as much class as possible to the players and let their membership see that it's a good team to work for. Most of what happens is out of his hands anyway, so there's no need to make Montreal the center of any negative attention in the labour battle, turn it into a positive as much as possible.
