So, the message from the Alberta board wasn't enough and they're going to try and get it blocked in a province that will probably just give them the same result. Instead of wasting time on these endless hopless tasks they could actually negotiate but I guess that requires too much common sense.

OK - it's early yet and I haven't had coffee yet so please humour me:

Why would a PA win prevent Quebec City from getting a franchise again?

It would not prevent it, but it would make the owners think twice if Quebec proved to be the only jurisdiction that sticks their nose into an international labour war.

They'd find a way to lose.

I don't see how the players would get paid?

What HRR flows into the league during a lockout (TV deal?)

Well maybe depends on CDN law

In the US if a state court indicated there was a violation of it's laws it would force the owner of a franchise to pay it's emplyees in accordance with their contracts and if they violated the law firing or laying off the emplyees would be viewed as a retaliatory act and likely result in punitive damages (read money)

More likely is the owner (Jacobs) would cite some Federal juridiction and have it removed to a Federal court. Any favorable ruling on behalf of the PA would lead to an appeal which sooner or later would lead to the Supreme Court.

At the point that a PA win in any court (which I'm sure would be automatically appealed by ownership) the NHL would be wise to settle the dispute before the courts did for them. They are smart businessmen. Losing in any court sets a precedent and thereby gives all unions potential leverage.

And leverage is really what the union is seeking from its lawsuit.

Likelihood of success in court, well different story.

wouldn't the NHLPA have to ununionize themselves before they are able to file a lawsuit?

They aren't a certified union in the province of Quebec.

One interesting development from last night's owners-players meeting, is that both the NHL and NHLPA have asked the Quebec Labour board to adjourn (for now). IOW, not to have any further deliberations on their "case".
