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?"
Players would never do that ,, No matter what dream world Brooks and others want to believe could happen
Players signed with Bill Wirtz ,, Even after his role in Alan Eagleson affair (Wirtz basically had puppet running NHLPA)
Players signed with Bill Wirtz even after his poor treatment of many team stars over years in contract disputes (Shaking JR's hand and saying he would be Hawk for life ,, Then trading him a year later to avoid giving him big contract for instance)
