I hope this makes something happen, but I doubt the NHL is moving from their position.
Well, the hook here is control of the process. Right now, the league holds all the cards. The only way the players can get back in is to agree to what the NHL wants.

If the union dissolves and sued the NHL, that changes the equation. The league can no longer dictate. Things then become up to the court to decide, and the league will be stuck accepting the court rulings, or litigating the heck out of things. Either way, they lose control of the process.

It's the only real chip the players have to play. It will either push both sides toward an agreement quickly, or torpedo the entire thing.
