Btw the league would not shut down this is just what pro owners keep saying what will happen is that the league will file for bankruptcy. Then other owners will take over a lot of the teams for pennys on the dollar. Then a new set of owners will be in place but will have learned the lessons of the old owners don't screw the players to much...

Edit... F the 4th and 5th linemen they don't put BOS no one gives a darn about them only time they do is when it comes to negotiations. They will be out of the league in a year or 2 anyways so why should what they think even matter? They don't like it they can join the other leagues like they always do. Plus because they are other leagues they will be ok because they cant make less then they could in other leagues and will prob make more anyways
Sure the players can sue for their own contract. I cna sue the NHL for making me sad. Doesn't mean I'll win.

Every player contract signed in the NHL says it is subject to the CBA. Absent a union, and thus a CBA their contracts will be null and void and will have nothing to sue for. Every single meeting the NHL conducts with its governors has lawyers present for the express purpose of ensuring nothing goes on that would be considered an anti-trust violation. The NHL has been preparing for a decertification scenario for years and years and are extremely confident they will prevail. Not to mention the history of court rulings are on the side of ownership.
