For example, what if the NHLPA had a say in where a franchise relocated? And for various political reason they (the NHLPA leadership, not the players) chose city XXX.

If city XXX flops, does the NHLPA bear fiscal responsibility? Would they want to? Would they want to be open to the possibility of being sued by the companies with broken contracts from the original city? Would they pony up for the relocation fee?

That crap is a Pandora's box and just rhetoric - in practice it would never work and everyone knows it.
