I think a lot of the NHL's preemptive case is just selecting the court in the event the PA starts pursuing a legal strategy. Brown vs NFL has already established that there must be a period of time between collective bargaining breakdown and when the union would have the right to pursue legal remedies for conduct permitted by collective bargaining, i.e. the lockout. Of course the court didn't define how long that period of time is.
