EDIT: Fugu partially answered my question.

My question now-realistically will there be any real negotiation going forward? Sounds like the NHL is preparing to go to court with the PA, as a result I don't think a PA vote to disclaim would have any affect as far as sudden concessions-I'm reading this simply that the NHL is basically "go ahead and vote, and if you vote yes, we're going to court" and the season will essentially be toast.
This is the absolute exact same script as the NBA lockout last season. Considering that Bettman was mentored by Stern and the NBA and NHL are both represented by Proskauer Rose, where Bettman was a partner, not exactly a big surprise here.
