Agreed. The season and next season will be done for. At that point, kiss the NHL good-bye.
New owners are not going to like that. Tampa and Buffalo did not sink in all this money, just to wash it away.
The contract point is an interesting one. If, in a court, an owner tries to state that the player contract is valid and they belong playing under such conditions, the players would then state how is it that said owner is trying to get out from paying the full worth?
Decertification is not cut and dry. I do think that it is a player's ultimate trump card. The article is correct when it states that NO owner wants to be in court facing unfair labor practices questions.
