That being said it's the timeline that would create that gives us the issue. Sounds like judge would fast track his decision to help in this somewhat but yeah the days are getting shorter for them to get this resolved.

I don't believe the NHL fears the legal case to be honest. It's political suicide for the PA to pull this move. It will be hard for their friends in the media to spin this positively.
Based on the NFL ruling last year it would be difficult IMO for a judge to fast track an anti-trust case or grant an injunction barring the lockout.
