The league.

This, historically, has already happened in sports. Over in auto racing with IndyCar, the IRL vs. CART. It was the owner of Indianapolis Motor Speedway who won the war over the teams and drivers, despite having lesser drivers, lesser cars and lesser tracks (save for the Indy 500).

The marque items in a sports series are the things the public knows. The public knew the Indy 500. The public knows the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins. The NHLPA would be facing starting a league all on its own, and trying to get the masses to believe that the Toronto Whatevers and Boston Whoosits are better than the franchises they've always heard of.
