My point was, if the NHLPA is "bluffing" with "starting the process" of decertification (thinking that the NHL will be pressured to move), that I think the NHL calls the bluff, and returns by saying the season now needs to be cancelled...
Edit: here's a link:
About the possibility that the NHLPA might decertify as a strategy:
Daly: "I wouldn't view an antitrust lawsuit in this case to be anything other than an unfortunate development because I think it's a time-consuming process that would likely lead to the end of the season."
They probably won't move to decertify unless it's clear this season is lost already, like mid-February, although decertification threats helped end the NBA lockout last year. If they thought they could get a court ruling in time to save this season, I think they would have done it already. It's about getting them playing for the 13-14 season.
