NHL fears Fehr itself

Yet there is the NHL in Paragraph 62 suggesting every player in the league become a free agent if the NHLPA were permitted to disclaim or decertify.
“[Existing] contracts ...[would be] void and unenforcable by law,” in the league’s own words.
And wouldn’t it just be grand if, under universal free agency, not a single player would choose to sign with Jeremy Jacobs’ Bruins?"
There will only be so many jobs and even fewer high paying ones. If the choice is to sign in Boston or work as a Walmart greater, players will sign in Boston.
