I think that the first "disclaimer" vote was a transparent attempt to increase the bargaining position of the NHLPA. Having the NHLPA in intense back and forth negotiations while they have an overwhelming authorization to "disclaim interest" seems to confirm the fact that the vote was a negotiating ploy.

I think that the upcoming vote might be in preparation for the possibility that the season is cancelled. If that occurred, then I can certainly see the NHLPA going "nuclear" through the courts. Why not give it a go, if the season is lost anyway?
