Redress in this manner refers to 'making amends' or 'to set right'. To say that there will be redress for us seems more likely that there is already an agreement in place where Molson will be compensated once the lockout is over rather than to say that Molson will seek compensation from the league.

I'd find it hard to believe that the league would institute a lockout and not provide their sponsors with any sort of potential redress for money lost to their business because of the lockout. It would just seem like bad business practice not to address those issues beforehand or early on in the lockout. If there wasn't some sort of acknowledgement by league and sponsors, I'd imagine that news of sponsors putting pressure on the league would be running rampant by now.
