thought i saw somewhere that the nhl was filing a lawsuit against the nhlpa?
Yep. Just came to post that. The entire article is on the ESPN website and is the top article on the right side feed, which is a shock.
Part of it:
The NHL Players' Association moved one step closer to disbanding the union with a preliminary vote toward disclaiming interest, and the NHL fired back with a pre-emptive strike of its own as the two sides appear to be headed for what could be a nasty court battle.
Upon learning the NHLPA's executive board voted Thursday night potentially to dissolve the union, the NHL filed a class-action complaint in federal court as well as a Unfair Labor Practice Charge with the National Labor Relations Board.
