yes but if the NHLPA threatens decertification I would counter with changing the structure in which NHL contracts are negotiated.
Instead of 30 teams negotiating independently you would have 1 league competing with other leagues for talent. A league which can then decide that as a whole they want to pay X% of HRR on player salaries.
Furthermore, there goes guaranteed contracts.
This is the nuclear option and I actually think it works against the players. It's the nuclear tactic but I don't believe the players know what exactly is down that rabbit hole.
