Oh man, this could get nasty. Part of NHL's filing includes section requesting declaration that "all existing contracts between NHL players and teams would be void."

Any you thought the league wasn't playing nice before.
Well, Fehr is asking the players to give him a nuclear option. If the
NHLPA is decertified, they cannot agree to a CBA. ......and if there is no
CBA, then the league has no exemption to anti-trust laws. That means
that any player with-out a contract is a free agent, and there can't be anything
like a draft. And certainly nasty. If this question remains open for long,
the equity value of NHL franchises will drop like a rock.
