They'd be ****ed!
The NHL bankrupt? I don't think the NHL itself has any debt accumulated aside from Phoenix since they operate them and they're about to sell this team. Some teams might file bankruptcy and then sue the NHL for whatever contractual reason they see fit, but aside from that all the other teams need to do is form another league and start over. AFAIK, the NHL doesn't own anything the teams don't, it's not a Coop or a hillbilly corporative setup.
