Contracts are a shady area, no one is sure, probably wouldnt matter though, as it would probably lead to litigation rather than the playing of hockey.

The CBA limits what owners can do (signing players younger than 18, the cap, etc.) and outlines the rights players have (contract rights, ELCs, min/max salaries, etc). These things are technically illegal under antitrust laws, but allowed because the players union bargained to these agreements. If the Union decertifies, players could theoretically start bringing lawsuits against owners for some of these things because they wont be bargained for because the union isnt a union because it decertified.


And mozilla needs to add decertify to the dictionary.
