If the PA decrts the players can play for any league competing with the NHL. There would be no anti trust exemption.
The existence of the Union makes the NHL exempt from antitrust legislation. By collectively bargaining through a Union the players have agree to the conditions that would typically be considered collusion.
I have heard mixed reports on if current contracts would be covered via contract law or if there would be a truly free market immediately. I would assume the former.
