Either that, or the Players are just trying to get a deal done without Fher, like the NBA did? didn't really understand that part.
Basically by taking the first move the NHL is trying to pick a jurisdiction they know is favorable to them - the business-friendly NY federal court that has a history of taking league sides.

Besides that, if they can get a declaration that the lockout is legal and in good faith, the NHLPA will have a more difficult time dissolving itself, and will need to take a vote to decertify. And if the league can postpone any decertification and take legal action against the NHLPA for not negotiating in good faith by trying to disclaim without decertification, the courts will take away that threat leaving the NHLPA with no leverage

If there is anything Bettman isn't going to lose it's a legal fight.

And the best part?

The NHL complaint also cites tweets supportive of Fehr from @Logancouture, @mattcarle25 and @ScottieUpshall.
The players own stupidity is going to come back to haunt them.
