Keep in mind that while the CHLPA "exists", they aren't a recognized union because they are legally amateur athletes in Canada (which by definition aren't allowed to be in a union). To become a real union, they'd have to become employees of the teams, which would open up current and former players to all kinds of CRA scrutiny (the benefits they receive are legal for an amateur athlete to receive to get them by, but an employee would have to claim every last benefit).
