What would really be interesting is if they decertified, and another party (say Paul Kelly and Mark Recchi) stepped in to certify, receiving majority support.

Regardless, if they decertify, there won't be any hockey this year, and probably next.
That would be the best route, I'm thinking, for the owners to take. Dealing with the players on a decertified basis would be an astronomical step backwards for the League; extremely few teams would benefit from it in the short term. And we know that the owners have stood together in bringing the League to where it is today, none of them are going to want to destroy all of that.
