Not unless they get mean about it. If they start investigating things in terms of legal claims and harm done to local workers and stuff like that, it might light a fire under the league's arse (to avoid any kind of legal disputes where the other side has bigger guns than they do). And a black eye from the coverage (PR wise), which could impact television contracts. Basically, only if the NHL fears it will cost them more money to ignore the government's warnings.
